    Keeping text objects editable from Illustrator to InDesign

    AdamA22190

      I need to take files someone created in AI and convert them to INDD.  This is a manual and for some reason they were designed with 10 AI files with 2 pages within each artboard.  So I need to create a INDD book, but I need the objects to be editable within the new files.  The place function doesn't seem to be doing anything as it imports as a flattened image.  The copy/paste function doesn't seem to work as the text becomes outlined.

       

      Is there any way (without buying 3rd party software) to import the AI files into INDD with the text maintaining its native editing capabilities?
