Make it possible to exchange text, vectors and pixels between Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator

Please make it possible/easier to exchange text, vectors and pixels (rasterized content) between Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator.

 

It turns out that it takes an enormous amount of time to put a simple layout from Photoshop with pixels, some vectors and text into InDesign, and it usually ends up having to recreate it completely. Simply placing .psd-file makes text not editable, vectors do not become vectors in Indesign etc.

 

It's possible to always start a design in InDesign. But the problem with starting in or switching to Indesign early is that you may still want to adjust the Photoshop (photo)composition, ie. with several transparent photographic elements. When placing text, you then have to keep switching back to Photoshop, and adjust your composition there. Then again you can't see what happens to the text because that is already in Indesign.

 

In this age of AI, why should it be so difficult to convert those to another format? They are just pixels and vectors and text.

The three separate programs exist because each has its own purpose. To give each one all of the capabilities of the other two would 1) remove the reason for having three different programs, and 2) Make the resulting single program so complex that it would be slower and less useful that the three individual programs that work together.

I agree with that. What I'm referring to here is that one can easily convert a layout once it's set up in Photoshop, for example, to easily continue working with it in InDesign, to make it print-ready, for example. The different purposes of the programs should not necessarily prevent vectors or a text box in Photoshop from being imported into InDesign and further processed there.
