1. Sometimes old original PDFs dating back 5 years are keep and wished to be update and changed, but the original INDD has since been lost/deleted, being able to open these PDFS in InDesign as an editable INDD would be very handy, this conversion allowing the document being able to be edited the same way the PDF's are edited in Acrobat: changing text, images;etc. The reason of wanting to do this in INDD and simply not just Acrobat is that InDesign has a lot more control for Graphic Designers than Acrobat, in terms of text settings, set styles, smart guides, creating shapes;etc.
2. Entire PDF in most cases. Note sometimes entire PDFs are only a few pages anyway.
3. Use-case: At the company I currently work at I'm the in-house Graphic Designer. I am the '3rd' in-house Graphic Designer to work at this company in the past 10+ years. A big part of my job at the moment is editing errors and adjusting the format of old INDD documents and exporting them to PDFs, the company packages these printed PDFs with there products. In some cases these old INDD (which majority of I did not make) are lost, and the entire document has to be remade because there is just too much to change and add in Acrobat. These documents have been around at this company for many, many years as some files were original made in Pagemaker, as this company has been around for 30 years now. If I could export these PDF files into a format that InDesign could read and edit it would save me a lot of time in the workplace.
How I would want this to work: The conversion would allow the PDF file to work in Indesign the same way as when you hit the edit button in Adobe Acrobat DC. Maybe rather than having text in separate lines, if the program could detects the same case size for text one once sentence being above or under one another, a nice feature would be to convert these lines to a text frame with leading detected and set the same way case size is when you edit docs in Acrobat. Also adding a feature that detects strokes/filled objects and converts these to one or the other would be nice.
