We have a magazine layout created in in design.

We have received multiple full page adverts in pdf with crop marks.

when I place the advert, what is the easiest way to place it so the crop marks dont show.

We are unable to open in illustrator and remove the crop marks as we do not have the fonts.

Any ideas would be great.

If the PDFs are built using page bleed, here's the easiest way to do it:

1. In InDesign, open the magazine layout.

2. Press Control/Command-D (the "place" shortcut)

3. Important:  In the dialog box that appears, make sure "Show Import Options" is checked.

4. Select the PDF ad (the one with the crop marks)

5. After you click Open, you'll get a second dialog box. In this dialog box, select 'Crop to Bleed' (if you need to maintain the bleed area) ... OR ... 'Crop to Trim' (if you don't need bleed)

Either way, you'll be able to place the artwork without showing the crop marks.
