If it needs to be editing in Illustrator, then create it in Illustrator.
Illustrator is not a general purpose PDF editor, never has been and is not likely to ever be.
Thanks for the fast answer Bob,
I was kind of afraid of getting that reply haha...
Actually what need to be editing is the TEXT. I would not like edit vectors in InDesign. So, there i NO way that Text can be edited between the 2 programs?
Try InCopy if it’s just the text.
Thanks for the extra info Bob.
Sad to hear InDesign and Illustrator are not as fluent between them.

InDesign and Illustrator are quite different in terms of usability and purpose. As recommended by Bob, you can edit the "Text" in InCopy. You can also edit the PDF in Acrobat. I am sharing the InDesign-InCopy workflow links in case you need.
Hi Ohmnath, thanks for the very interesting links. :-)
You are right i am mixing the purpose of the two programs. I started using Illustrator a long time ago as a replacement for Corel Draw. Can you imagine that? haha. Unfortunately in one of my works if doing brochures for the government and everybody use Illustrator which is not the best way for handling texts. I have to do it in Illustrator so other people can edit the files but Illustrator is a pain for long texts. Actually i see not much use for Illustrator than making vectorial logos. InDesign is my main program but i cannot use it everywhere, too bad.
I will take a look a the workflow you suggested. Thanks for expanding the ideas!
