    How to move or copy ID layout to AI?

    Deaf Mike Level 1

      I'm designing some 6 foot banners for my department and plan to lay everything out in InDesign.  The print shop, however, is saying they only want an Illustrator file.  I thought this was a little silly because I've designed all different kinds of large-print projects and those print shots have accepted a high-res PDF made from the ID file.  I've even done one in PSD and that was fine too.

       

      Anyway, after I do it in ID I'd love to just be able to copy the whole design into the Illustrator file instead of doing the layout all over again one item at a time in AI.  I use CS4 but I do have access to CC too, so are there any work procedures to make this go smoothly?

       

      Thanks for any advice and suggestions.
