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

This aggravates me even more than some viruses out there.
Same problem, after latest InDesign version install.
Quitting and re-opening InDesign each time does help, but is a pain.
Please fix bug soon...
Same here, was starting to go crazy trying to figure out what was happening. Glad to see I'm not the only one.... NOT glad to see Adobe broke something once again...
This has been happening to me for about a week now. Even after deleting the trash contents, the AdobeFnt21.lst file and the folders above it keep duplicating to the desktop anytime a file is opened or packaged.
When disconnected from a network, and working locally from the desktop, I found that the duplication stopped. Once the Ethernet cable was reconnected the folders started replicating instantaneously... even when the trash had been emptied.
macOS High Sierra 10.13.6
InDesign CC 2020 15.0.2
When packaging a file in InDesign 2020 15.0.2, any previous documents that have been opened during this session will also have folders created with only a folder continuing a file called AdobeFnt21.lst.
For instance, I open file myfile123.indd and package it, everything is fine. I close that file but leave InDesign running. I then open myfile456.indd and package it. It will properly package the second file, but also create another folder with the name of the first file and the only thing in the folder is the AdobeFnt21.lst file. If I close Indesign completely after packaging the first file, the second file will package without the extra folder. Seems to be a bug in this version as this did not happen prior to 15.0.2.
Ive got the same issue... Ive tried restarting deleting files and all sorts.. Cant get rid of them!
Same issue (macOS Catalina 10.15.2 / InDesign 2020 15.0.2).
There is also another font issue, too - I am missing some font styles from a font family - “Bold” disappear from the family. But it’s installed (not font resolutions) and seen in other programs.
This happens on different fonts families on different documents.
same problem! big server chaos!!

1. Package a file including links and fonts to separate folder on the desktop (my 'today's work' folder).
2. Move the newly packaged folder back to the original location from which it was packaged, replacing the original folder completely. I would do this if, for example, I've changed some images in the layout so need to refresh the links folder. Running an entire package keeps links fully updated.
3. Open the InDesign file again by double-clicking on the desktop.
The result is a duplicate folder with the same folder name reappears in my 'today's work' folder. This new folder contains a duplicate Document fonts folder but does not duplicate the InDesign file, or the Links folder.
This new duplicate folder will always appear in the folder which the packaged files were saved to.
This will happen multiple times if you repeat the above steps. The only way to stop it happening is to quit and relaunch InDesign. After doing this, the duplicate folder stops appearing.
Same issue-- Have been able to successfully replicate the issue on three different computers. You package a file, then move it to the trash. Package a new file, and the old folder reappears with AdobeFont.lst inside. Sometimes more than one folder will appear.
Reproducible on Mojave 10.14.6
Same here. I trash the packaged files and the outer folder along with the inner "Document fonts" folder with the AdobeFnt21.lst file in it returns. Mac Catalina running InDesign 15.0.2.
Indesign 15.0.2 on Mac OS 10.14.6 does not seem to want to "let go" of the fonts in the Document fonts folder in packaged document now upon closing a file.
Whenever I close out of a file, I copy the updated files/folder onto our documents server and then put that file in trashcan. But whenever I go back into InDesign for a different job, InDesign seems to pull that previously trashed folder back with only the Document fonts folder. If I quit InDesign and then trash the file, it stays in the trash.
I've the same problem
