Convert illustrator text layer to live text layers
by right clicking a photoshop layer you can have it become a live text inside AE please do the same for illustrator files

Again, the years fly by without so much as an acknowledgment from Adobe much less implementation. Can't even express how much this would make a HUGE difference in our workflow.

For those that might not be aware of these two workarounds:
Illustrator can write to editable PS text layers if we use File > Export As... > Photoshop PSD. The resulting PSD file can then be imported into AE and those PS text layers can be converted to AE text. (If that feels like a bunch of extra steps, it is a few clicks.)
We can copy and paste the content of an Illustrator text object to the content of an AE text layer. This should maintain the font, the fill, and the stroke. Just be sure to have selected all the text (don't copy and paste just the text object from AI). Of course, important things like placement in the frame are not maintained.
Yes please. The Overlord plugin can do it, so why not After Effects ?....
