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
Also having the same issue.
Creates a folder with the same name - usually just holding a copy of the Document Fonts
Same issues as above and on this thread **AdobeFnt.lst automatically reappears after deleting**
it's now April 7 has this been resolved yet?

Same issue here and all of the files seem to have this file "AdobeFnt21.lst" in the fonts folder when collected.
It's true, it appeared first when I packaged a Indesign file. I have removed anything that had .lst after it. but it still keeps appearing, and keeps putting everything Ive trashed back on my desktop and also in a folder designated for packed art. (I have to do that now to keep straight what is good and whats not).
So now when I download anything from. my email, when I create a PDF in Indesign, boom there's everything back on my desktop. What do I need to do, have my mac wiped clean? If so how long before it starts up again? Do I need to go back to using an older version of indesign that not compatible with half the art I receive? Thanks.
Why does this take so long? it has been over a month and still no solution? it is so frustrating working with this bug.
This is really becoming an organizational nightmare. Folders i have deleted are coming back like zombies! Please fix.
Having the same issue with multiple duplicate files saving to desktop every time i open the packaged document. Please fix this bug.
After upgrading to InDesign 15.0.2, the "AdobeFnt.lst" file in the "Document fonts" is empty, i.e. it contains no font entries, despite the font files being present in the folder. This happens when creating a Package via "File > Package". In the report dialog that shows up before creating the package, all fonts are OK.
The AdobeFnt.lst file only has the following contents:
=> Here would now normally all the fonts in the "Document fonts" directory be listed. (%BeginFont etc.)
Up to InDesign 15.0.1 this worked flawlessly. The error can be reproduced on macOS Catalina and Mojave, Windows has not been tested. The font files (e.g. .ttf) are all present in the Document fonts directory.
Is this a bug or has the AdobeFnt.lst been deprecated / abandoned?
Thanks for investigating this.

Also having this problem and it is VERY frustrating.
WFH and doing a lot of file management and the phantom folder bug is not helping.
Spell Check also not working.
Just install the previous InDesign 15.0.1 with your Creative Cloud app (three-dots menu, install other versions) until the issue is fixed, your current preferences are saved.
on mac OS High Sierra, Version 10.13.6 and Indesign 2020, version 22.214.171.1243. Same problem as reported aboved. Adobe please send a solution. Sooner than later, if possible because it creates lots of problems with large workflow
Quite annoying. I am experiencing the same here. Keep on deleting the folders, and they re-appear as soon i open InDesign again.
Ghost folders being created - Adobe unable to keep pace with Apple OS updates - garbage programming.

This bug is the most annoying, especially when working within a Box Sync setting with many freelancers working on the same files over the course of a week. THings are getting inundated with duplicated folders, please fix this ASAP
Alison Pearson commented
Everything i've sent to output has produced several reappearing folders...
the other day i was so inundated with them that I wound up tossing out a folder i needed...
PLEASE fix this bug it's super annoying and if you are super busy and in the fast lane going 100mph on a daily basis you are going to toss away something you may need...
Josh Hoppe commented
Same issue here at our newspaper. Causing havoc with our normal workflow......and at a terrible time for there to be an issue.
Please hurry up and fix this bug, clearly it's happening to everyone using indesign. Super frustrating especially when you are creating multiple assets a day. I have 1 folder with 10 ghost folders and its driving me mad deleting them every 2 seconds.
