    "…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.

    Hi John,
    the solution:
    Uninstall InDesign 15.0.2.323 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.

    Hi Abhinav,
    also see the following discussion at Adobe InDesign Forum:

    InDesign is creating extra folders after packaging files

    Hi Abhinav,
    I see the issue as well with my German InDesign 15.0.2.323 on Windows 10.

    My experience with the bug is this:

    1. Package the active document with Links, Document fonts, IDML and PDF to the suggested folder of function Package For Print.
    2. Move the folder of the package to a different folder.
    3. Close the active document .

    4. Here comes the bug:
    In the moment* you are using InDesign's Open command with the ORIGINAL InDesign document you packaged before, a new folder is created. The name of that new "ghost folder" is the same of the moved packaging folder. The folder's position in the file system is the same of the packaged folder where it was created before. The contents of this new folder is a Document fonts folder with one single file: AdobeFnt21.lst

    If you open a different document that was not packaged in the same session the new "ghost folder" is not created. I define session as "Start InDesign" to "Quit InDesign".

    If you also move or remove the "ghost folder" it will be re-created if you open the document where the once packaged folder was created from.

    One can stop that behavior: Quit InDesign. Restart InDesign.

    * I know this exact moment because I have a eventlistening script installed that opens the folder of any exported file in the file system. It looks if the event "afterExport" is fired.

    Uwe Laubender

    Hi Lisa,
    if you open documents from InDesign CC 2015 where graphic cells contain text frames:
    InDesign will crash immediately if you want to duplicate the table. Be it by alt+dragging the table character to a different text insertion point, be it by duplicating the page with the table.

    What's new with InDesign 2020: Even if you want to add a text frame BY SCRIPTING to a graphic frame's container InDesign will crash immediately. This still worked with InDesign CC 2019. Not so with InDesign 2020.

    Hi Lisa,
    still an issue with InDesign 2020. Nothing changed.

    What formatting plugin are you talking about?

    I'd inform the makers of the plugin, that there is an issue with text frames or text paths within graphic cells.

    Regards,

    Hi Tara,
    it's still possible to insert groups of frames into the container frame of a graphic cell. The only problem: The group must not contain a text frame or a frame with text on path.

    This feature—groups with text frames insert in graphic cells—was removed, because a text frame inside a graphic cell will crash InDesign when the table is duplicated, copied/pasted…
    I hope, that sometime the developers will fix that issue and the feature will be available again.

    Regards,
    Uwe

    PS: There are still tricks to workaround, but I would not recommend them because of the crashes you can get when working on with a table.

    Hi Paul,
    I tested a lot with langauage layers and endnotes.
    Don't think there is a good solution at all. Not with the concept how endnotes are working currently.
    It's better to switch to a workflow where one document goes with one single language.

    Don't think the issue is a bug.
    The issue is due to a design decission adding the endnotes feature to InDesign.

    I'd file a bug with Illustrator and not with InDesign.

    Hi together,
    currently all Align tools of InDesign are working with the visible bounds of objects ONLY.
    I also like to see an option where Align is using path segments or path points to align objects.

    That should be an option even with the Selection Tool.

    Hi Adriank,
    you could work around the issue and use a spread with several pages ( up to 10 ! ) where each of the pages are positioned individually on the spread using the Page Tool. That could be done best with NON-facing-pages documents.

    Kasyan Servetski discovered a workaround:
    Lock all items in your document. Unlock them after adding or removing pages or moving pages around.
    FWIW: Locking layers does not count.

    Two very simple ExtendScript-scripts, one for locking all items, one for unlocking all items:

    Did not test it, but that would not be a huge licensing error only.
    You may risk that a slightly different version of the font is used.
    And that could mean: Different glyphs, different baseline, different kerning etc.pp.

    In the end a different composition of text!

    I wonder how we can test that bug. Hm. Ok. Let's do that with Adobe's own font Source Sans Pro.
    There are several versions on Git-Hub that are so different that a substitution with an activated version from Adobe Fonts should be immediately visible if one is editing text.

    Hm. That said, could be that even without editing text this will be visible, if there are different values for baseline in the EM box of the font.

    See into this thread at Adobe InDesign Forum where exactly that happened:

    Hallo Rainer,
    blöderweise werden von der Attach-Funktion hier keine InDesign-Dateien oder zip-Dateien angenommen.
    Falls Du eine zip-Datei dennoch anhängen möchtest, kannst Du zu folgendem Trick greifen:

    MeinArchiv.zip > umbenennen nach > MeinArchiv.zip.txt

    Dann funktioniert das.

    Rudolf said:
    "- on windows, i think it is an option to show all files in place dialog and then choose PSB (not sure, but so i remember when i got externally supplied document with placed PSB and experimenting how it was done... i on my mac and colleague on windows)."

    Absolutely right. This is working!
    You even get the right Import Options for placing PhotoShop files.

    Hi together,
    also see this thread at Adobe InDesign Forum:

    InDesign 2020 Middle Eastern, Arabic language causes revered numbers order
    Shlomit_Heymann, Jan 09, 2020

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/indesign/indesign-2020-middle-eastern-arabic-language-causes-revered-numbers-order/td-p/10845101

    I assume this is a bug in the ME version of InDesign 2020.
    Cannot see that with sample text in my German version where I created "faked" Arabic text using Arabic placeholder text and typed in or copied in the expression 9/1/2020. In both cases it did not reverse.

    My German InDesign test file is available from my Dropbox account:
