I have a layout that has some overset text (the frame is smaller than the content), but when I go to export it with In5, the "make overset text scrollable" option is greyed out and I can't select it.

I'm trying to do a Baker export, but I've tried various combinations of all the other options and nothing enables overset text.

This setting is not available when exporting text as images.

Ah, obvious really. I could have sworn I tried that in 1.2.3, but it is behaving as you say in 1.3.0, altho as per my other comment I always get MinionPro regardless of any fonts used in the document.
I'd be happy to take a look at that if you'd like to send me a copy of the file.
Come to think of it, I can see how this would easily be achieved with an image in a clipping div...is this a feature that is likely to be available at some point in the future?
Not impossible, but unlikely. This would require a lot manipulation of the textframe before export, that could lead to other issues. Whereas, getting overset text does not.
