Is there a way to remove overflowing text from a publication? I am splitting a very large document in chapters by doing a save-as and deleting superfluous pages. But then every last page has a text-frame with overflowing text, containing all the rest of the text...

Select all the overflowing text (place cursor in the text, Ctrl+Shift+End to select) and then Delete?

Ha! I've a feeling that the OP already tried that. I did, to no avail. My overflowing text does not go away. I no longer need it, but when I try to publish, I'm reminded that I have overflow text. If I insert empty frames to let it flow in, one of the results (sometimes, I can't even predict what a result will be because it's not consistent) is that the rest of the document goes blank, all 150+ pages. This was originally a Word document, and it's been a nightmare to put together. Another result is that the text will spill across the entire two pages, inside and outside of the the layout, into the abyss. Yet another is that all the links go haywire and I'm left with cris-crossing links, and I do mean haywire.

I've worked through (or around) all of the program's quirks that I've encountered so far, but this one's got me beat (I'm using the latest version.)
