They aren't the text overflow indicators I know what those are. These
are little red thin rectangles that aren't quite in the vertical
middle of the text frame. They don't really get in the way.

After the CalendarWizard creates the calendar those little red
rectangles appear. I have clicked on them but nothing happen out of
the ordinary. In other words the text frame is selected. Maybe they
are nothing and just a funny appearance. The document works fine and
they don't get in the way.

I don't have a site to post the sla file or screen captures to.

I have made PDFs of pages of the calendar and they come out just fine.


So you want it fast, good, and cheap. Choose any two.
