    In InDesign you can't open PDFs, you can only import (place) them. File > Place... choose the file, show import options to be able to select the correct page and pdf box.

    There are existing several plugin you could buy which will extend the functionality of InDesign and one of them will let InDesign open pdf files. But this comes not with InDesign, you have to buy it extra.

    Markzware's PDF2DTP will import not only a PDF into InDesign, but can also convert a native Illustrator to InDesign as well. Watch:

    Hi Peter, yes, PDF2DTP (Mac or Windows) is InDesign CC compatiable, internally. We will be releasing that very shortly to market.

    I represent Recosoft Corporation the creators of PDF2ID. PDF2ID converts PDF, Illustrator and WIndows XPS files to native editable InDesign files. Depending on your InDesign version there is PDF2ID v3.5 for InDesign CS4-CS6 support and PDF2ID v4.0 built specifically for InDesign Creative Cloud (or v9.0).
