importing font & paragraph styles

Greetings,
Is it possible to save a threaded text document from Illustrator and import that document into InDesign "with" the font and paragraph styles intact?
Thanks so much!

I know you can import font and styles from one InDesign document to another, but not sure about Illustrator.

You can place the .ai file directly into InDesign. I do this quite a lot to create PDF's from multiple Illustrator pages. Is this what you're talking about?

Brad, thanks for the input.
I want to stylize a text object in Illustrator, then when I import the text object into Indesign, I want the stylized text to show up in Indesign as I created it in Illustrator.

We make a master layout in Illustrator, which is our "main" software package. When we have 2-200 names to be input into the master layout, we do that in Indesign with it's multi-page feature, sort of automating the process of inputting a different name into a static paragraph of text.

Hope this make sense.
Thanks
...dave.

Sounds like you need to embed the fonts into an EPS. file.

I hope this helps

Now, when you were talking about populating a paragraph with different names in InDesign, what is your process? A fellow co-worker of mine is having problems with getting different names to show up. Basically, what he is trying to do is create a multi-page document as a name tag template in InDesign. So, when given a list of names from a database, he will select and import the list into InDesign and have each name tag fill with the list of names. When he attempts this, it only fills every tag with one name. Maybe this isn't relevant to what you were saying, but I thought I'd try anyway.

Thanks,
