Is there a way to view all errors within a publication like finding where the overflow text is located?

I don't think there is at this point.  This has been requested elsewhere on the forum already.

Or overlapping items?

Not sure what the use case for this would be?  Overlapping items are normal and expected.

Assuming you have View > Show Text Flow enabled and View > Preview Mode disabled, each Text Frame will have an outline, typically a blue box. Ones that overflow will in addition have a red dot on the left and right side of that outline. So, you simply look through each page of your document, and look for the red dots.

  1. Thank you Walt for the kind answer.  I am obviously in the wrong place for this question. It is not a bug and I am aware of the red dot.  I have used other software in the past that showed all the errors and located them for you. I had hoped that would be so in AFPub as well. I will go to the feature request for that.
