    Well, that's a shame.

    After a long wait we have an update to InDesign this morning, but a quick test reveals that the phantom folders containing an AdobeFnt.lst are still appearing after a file is packaged. This is a bit disappointing, so let's hope that today's update is an interim that addresses other issues and that the main update mentioned in the post about the Beta is still coming.

    InDesign v.15.0.2

    Steps are:
    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.

    One thing I did to help the current situation is to remove the CMD+Z keystroke from Undo using Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts… At least then when you automatically hit CMD+Z (it's impossible to get out of the habit, right?) nothing happens and you can avoid losing a bunch of changes. I'm pretty sure it's saved me a lot of time. Fingers crossed that a full update happens soon - there's no way I'm using a Beta for live client projects.

    Is there any indication when this will be released from Beta as a full commercial release. Tempting as it is to download the Beta build, I'm not too keen on using it for actual work.
