How can we improve InDesign?

Expose a page item's height and width to scripting

A script can determine a page item's dimensions via its geometricBounds property. But this doesn't work when the page item is overset. To get the dimensions of page item in overset text, you have to expose the page item temporarily, which is always time-consuming and often barely possible.

So if we could have properties such as

myTextFrame.width
myTextFrame.height

that would be very useful.

Thank you.
