I can't bring formatted text from AI to InDesign and have it be editable. Is there a way to do this?

Not that I know of. You can copy characters to the clipboard in Illustrator and paste them into InDesign, but the formatting is lost.

It is easier to go the other way as you can save a pdf from InDesign and open that pdf in Illustrator with most eidtability intact, except some lines of type get broken.

hmm... it works for me. Set copy in IllustratorCS, copy the text block (not just the type with selection tool) then, paste into InDesign. (Don't import text into the box)

Colors, fonts and such seem to work for me. All CS versions though, don't know about non-CS versions.

In Quark, if you select formatted text then File Save Text As and choose rtf you can then import that into InDesign and all the stylings will be intact as well.

I know, sorta off topic, but not far..
