My request is that Adobe's expert team works on expanding the place options for the entire suit. Make it possible to easily place text from pdf's into indesign, illustrator, etc. and not just as an image file but as literal text that can be edited. And NO one tell me this is not possible. If text from some pdf's can be coppied and pasted into indesign then it can certainly be made possible to place it in on a larger scale without losing your formating. I don't want to hear from any CAN'T DO's out there. I'm confident that Adobe can make this and more options available with the place feature if the demade is great enough.
You'll need to post that on the InDesign and Illustrator forums for them to see the request.

Anything else you don’t want to hear?
Anyway, have you tried simply converting the pdf with Illustrator? (Though this may break some text-blocks into smaller pieces.)
