    You can PLACE Illustrator files, (AI, EPS, PDF), and very effectively paste from Illustrator, but you can't open...

    Note that when you paste text from Illustrator into InDesign, it comes
    in uneditable form.

    Not exactly true. If you paste with AICB and preserve paths selected,
    all objects become InDesign objects and can be edited. Any text will be
    converted to outlines.

    True. Unfortunately, there is no way to paste text objects from
    Illustrator into InDesign and have them remain editable *as text*. Now
    that Illustrator and InDesign share the same text engine, one can hope
    that this will be different in the next versions of these programs.

    Now that Illustrator and InDesign share the same text engine




    Except that they don't.

    "It's the exact same text engine that appears in Photoshop CS and in After Effects 6.0. On a feature-level, it's identical to InDesign's text engine, but under the hood, InDesign's code is different."

    Thus saith Mordy Golding.

    He was even overstating the case for feature-level compatibility.
