Overset means there are words or sentences beneath another paragraph making it non visible during printing or converting. This could even be empty line breaks. Please adjust the text so that its visible if those hidden texts are required and if not delete it. If its just an empty space, remove the spaces using a backspace and then try to export. You should now not see the Overset Text notification while you export.
