Does anyone have a recommended program or plug in that will allow me to edit text,  layouts, etc. in INDD CC 2021? I know I can edit the pdfs in Adobe Acrobat but it's not as easy or desirable as INDD. Thank you! 

Which one did you use Jonathan Arias?

Thanks, Bob! Yes, I'd love the original indd file but the client does not have it. Have you used either of these products? The Markzware looks good...

No, I have not and the results of either will depend on the original document.

The other thing you can try is save the PDF as a Word file and place that into InDesign. It's going to need work but again, it will depend on the document.

How large is it?

Great idea to try the Word file, I did and it's not a great result. The pdfs are only 1-4 pages but I have several of them to update to a new brand standard (fonts & colors). So looks like I'll try one of the plug ins you mentioned.  Thank you.

i used the .pdf to indesign converter.

I had the following work after the converstion: re-created: master pages (page numbers), all styles and layers, all of the graphics are compressed to the resolution of the .pdf so several graphics i had to redo or find new ones.

 

It was just so much easier to start from scratch for me. never used it again.

 

But that was my experience, try it, see what you think.  its free to try it. curious what your opinion of the product would be.

I ended up purchasing Markzware PDF2DTP and I like it! For the most part it works great for my needs. Thanks everyone for your input!
