Hello, I use a Stock subscription and an InDesign subscription.
I can not place some AI files from the stock offer in InDesign. Obviously, these AI files were not stored PDF-compatible. That happened to me several times now.
Do I have to sign up for an Illustrator subscription to place these AI files in InDesign? (I do NOT want to edit the AI files, just place them in an InDesign layout.)

Unfortunately there is no way checking if the PDF preview is with the file. And as you correctly said, Indesign uses the embedded PDF data and does not know how to interpret Illustrator data.

Either you use the preview file or you need access to Illustrator. If both is not possible, the asset you acquired is useless.
