When exporting from illustrator into Photoshop I can't seem to get editable text layers, tried all the configurations, will come in as separate layers but not editable, any one know what I am missing?

You can't really do it -- the text engines used by Photoshop and Illustrator are too different.
The most you can copy across is the text and basic style (size and font).

I can understand the whish to have one text engine common to all apps. IIRC, AI, ID share the same, while PS and AE share another one... Not sure about Flash, DW, Muse, etc.
