Text frames show an Eye symbol, near bottom on right hand side when text over flows. 

The Eye is crossed out its the overflow is set to hidden.

Sorry but I don't see the "Eye symbol"

Agreed, in your screenshot I can't see any Eyes either!

This is the symbol / functionality to which I referred, but it doesn't look like that is working with your document.

Are you importing a file in from a different application? What file format?

Can you attach the file so that others can experiment?

1. When I open your file I get the message about missing fonts, but no message about overflowing text. Nor do I see the Eye symbol indicating a text overflow…

  • Which is very odd because both of the top two text frames have a text overflow!
    • Text > Show Special Characters shows that there are blank lines trailing the visible text in each frame.
  • When I click in the frame with then the Eyes appear.

 

2. The fonts problem relates to the images at the top of the page. The keyboard is vector graphics which uses these fonts.

  • You can identify this problem using Document > Font Manager… to locate the missing fonts.

You'll get that message when you try to do a File > Export

Be carfull to always work with showing Special Charaters, and using the shortcut ctrl+shift+w when you want to look at the final result.

This way, you'll be able to easily check that you text frames end with this character that means "end of the text" (=no overflow):
