AdobeFnt.lst automatically reappears after deleting
InDesign version: 15.0.2
Suddenly (after the latest March 2020 InDesign update?) the AdobeFont.lst file created with InDesign packages automatically shows up with folder structure after deleting a package. This is really aggravating for file management. It's as if my team can't fully delete InDesign packages. This is happening with multiple InDesign files on multiple machines.
We have fixed this issue and the fix is available in latest InDesign build 15.1.1
please confirm in comments if the fix is working well for you
Same issue here. InDesign 15.0.2 on a Mac.

as far as I can tell this issue seems to be fixed on Prerelease.
I tested with the latest German prerelease version of InDesign on Windows 10.

Can you somehow notify us when there's a solution? This is a mess.
this is happening to me too. it's driving me nuts.
I was wondering why nobody who is experiencing this bug as "horrible", "frustating", "nightmare", or other qualifications installs the previous 15.0.1 version until it is fixed in 15.0.3. It takes a minute to revert back to 15.0.1, preferences are saved, 100% compatibility with documents. After a couple of days experiencing this bug I reverted back, and no issues anymore.
We are also experiencing this very annoying and dangerous issue. This only happens when you are collecting fonts which creates the AdobeFnt21.lst list. Our designers could quite easily dump the wrong folder when trying to clean up these bug generated folders. Please fix this Adobe.
Has anyone noticed that the latest version of InDesign 2020 (15.0.2) is recreating extra folders after files have been packaged with images and fonts?
The issue occurred as soon as I opened that InDesign file once again. After doing this, a new folder (same name as the packaged material) reappeared in the 'work' desktop folder.
It only contains only the Document Fonts folder, so no duplicate Links or a copy of the InDesign files itself. Weird behaviour
Why has "my" bug (originally https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/40087564-adobefnt-lst-empty-when-creating-package) been merged with this one? Having empty lst files (my bug) is not the same as having them reappearing (this bug)!
I'm having the same issue - deleted old packaged file reappears with just the font folder and AdobeFnt21.lst over and over and over, about every 15 minutes. PLEASE FIX THIS HORRIBLE BUG ASAP
Quit Indd. Trash or move package. Relaunch indd.
The files wont come back but it is a supper annoying bug!
I'm having to move files to trash and empty immediately, but that doesn't even work all the time. Also relaunching Finder periodically or full on shut down/reboot. Very real issue.
I am experiencing this multiple times daily. As I work with numerous files in a prepress setting daily (as well as supporting other similar users in an IT function), I find myself running in circles trying to make sure that the incorrect folders get removed so we don't have potential downtime due to someone removing the actual good file.
Having the same issue. My goodness, it's so annoying. Please handle it now.
This is slowing down my work time by a lot too. Every time I click inside an indesign file uploads like 5 of these lst files into my drive. And i dont have the option to work from my desktop. FIX THIS PLEASE.

How long does this issue have to be "under review" to fix it?
I downgraded to InDesign 15.0.1 and the problem went away.
So this appears to be an issue introduced in the 15.0.2 version of InDesign.
I have random previous folders appearing after I save an Illustrator file as an Adobe PDF. Totally unrelated to the file I just saved.
This issue is very serious!
We're having previously trashed and permanently deleted package folders magically reappear on our desktop.
This appears to be related to the packaging of fonts. Only the package folders where we included fonts reappear. If you do not include fonts then the package folder does not reappear.
Steps to replicate on our system (Mac OS 10.14.6, InDesign 15.0.2)
1) Restart InDesign and reset the preferences by holding down the requisite key combination.
Note: Deleting the InDesign preferences clears the condition temporarily, until the next time you package a document and include fonts.
2) Create a new document, or open an existing one.
3) Package the document and include fonts. Save package to the desktop as folder "PKG-1"
4) Delete the PKG-1 folder and empty the trash.
5) Repeat step 3 but save the package folder as "PKG-2".
6) The PKG-2 folder will be created, but the previously-deleted PKG-1 folder will reappear on the desktop as well.
Kindly repair this as soon as possible.
Ce bug est insupportable, merci de réparer au plus vite
I am reporting this for the second time. Please may you look into this because it is highly frustrating when deleted files keep reappearing.
