At least the distracted and unaware state would be occurig in the now so we wouldn't have that to worry about.

Yes you would have that doubt if you thought there was somewhere else to be other than the NOW. You would have to work out whether you were in that other place (wherever it is:) or in the NOW.

If one accepts however that we have flights of fancy, daydreams, distractions, memories about the past, and imaginings about the future, which all happen right NOW and do not therefore somehow remove us from the now, the problem is over.

Nothing to do with doubt, just how would one know if they were "distracted and unaware"?

If there is only the NOW one would not have to concern oneself with that question (what a relief:) in terms of whether one was in the now or not, because one would be distracted and unaware in the NOW.
