    Can't believe only 11 people are with you on this Caroline! If memory serves me this text formatting compatibility was in fact a feature of the original InDesign program - because it makes perfect sense! Certainly for someone like me - a designer who often incorporates Illustrator's artwork functionalities in their page layout design. My guess is Adobe soon realized that they needed to give designers a better reason to purchase both programs, so building in different text engines was one way to do that. From a designer's standpoint it would have been much better if they would have incorporated InDesign's page layout features into their existing Illustrator program - or vice versa. One program that does it all, akin to the old Macromedia Freehand which Adobe bought and discarded so as to remove from competition back in the early/mid 2000s.
