Importing Illustrator files - Adobe Indesign Windows

For some reason I can't place Illustrator CS (.ai) files into InDesign CS (with latest update). It just imports a bunch of text instead of the paths. Sometimes I can copy and paste. Any ideas? -- Seth Meranda smeranda<at>unlnotes<dot>unl<dot>edu...

    Just save these ai files to eps files and try again... The eps is not dead yet.

    I can do that, but why won't InDesign import an .ai file? I would think that would be ideal, considering how adobe wants all creative suite apps to synchronize.

    Try throwing away your InDesign preferences. InDesign CS can definitely import (File > Place) .AI files.

    On saving your paths in Illustrator CS enable option "create PDF compatible file". If it's not enabled you get on import to InDesign CS a text note to do so.
