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
Update, if it helps, in my experience: that folder doesn't reappear until the next time you open an InDesign file. At that point, all the deleted packages reappear with their Document Fonts > AdobeFnt21.lst for each. Quitting and restarting InDesign "breaks the chain" and those folders don't come back when you open another file, but nobody wants to quit and restart the app every time you want a deleted folder to stay deleted of course.
I have the same problem and am very worried about inadvertently overwriting the correct folder WITH all files intact. These phantom folders just have empty folders ....
Same issue is happening to me. I also cannot spellcheck. Sure would like these fixed. What a hassle!
I am having the same issue too.
Apparently I have the same issue that I thought initially was linked to the use of Google Drive Stream: once you use the new package, the AdobeFntxx will get added over and over, taking all the resources of the system (so you hardly can work on Id itself) until few minutes later you decide to quit the job and you find out you have 750 AdobeFnt files created in your folder. Happens differently on OneDrive: will not create multiple files, but will keep updating/syncing the file, using the overall bandwidth similarly.
Hope this can be resolved soon!
OS: Catalina 10.15.3
The same thing happens to me. I package a file and then move it from my desktop to the appropriate folder and then another folder appears on my desktop that looks like the one I moved but It only contains a Document Fonts folder that with AdobeFnt21.lst in it.
If I trash it it just reappears over and over.
See attached screenshot.
Having the same trouble, keeps rebuilding the font list and all I can do is watch the spinning wheel.
Yes, this is happening to me also 3/20/20. OS version 10.15.3 InDesign version 15.0.2

I have the same problem and the shadow packaged artworks are appearing when I generate a PDF too. Please advise when repair available.

Myself and my colleagues are now having the same issue now that we have updated our Adobe Indesigns.
Pretty please fix!!

I am also having this problem on macOS Catalina with the most recent Indesign 15.0.2
If you create a package in a specific folder, no matter if you move the files or not, when you open that .indd file again (wherever it is now) it will recreate the Package folder and the sub-folder Document Fonts in the same exact place as where the InDesign document was originally created.
At this point, with the amount of materials I've made in the last month (I work for a health agency) there's no possible way I will ever be able to track down and locate all of the 'orphaned' package folders that InDesign has created in our system.
Hi Adobe, please can you guys fix this because it's becoming a real problem. I package documents regularly and as a result, I now have multiple files being saved on to our server and it's creating a lot of confusion.

"…on top of that restarting indesign doesn't solve it at all"
Of course my suggestions are workarounds.
May I ask why "Quit InDesign" and "Restart InDesign" does not work for you?
What happens if you open the document you did the package from after restarting InDesign?
In my tests on Windows 10 this is stopping the behavior of adding a new folder with a Document fonts folder only that contains a lst file.

Same problem here. Deleting the wrong folder could result of this bug :/
InDesign 15.0.2 / Catalina 10.15.3
Same! Really annoying for files to keep being "un"deleted.
Uwe Laubender This is not a solution, this is a work around, on top of that restarting indesign doesn't solve it at all

Uninstall InDesign 184.108.40.2063 and re-install version 15.0.1.
Or if you want to keep the current version:
1. Package your document.
2. Quit InDesign
3. Open InDesign and work on until you have to package a document.
( ACP )
Does anyone have a solution for this latest bug? Thank you
