What are you using for a font management program?
suitcase fusion. latest version
the issue just stop, also now see in my suitcase fusion that adobe fonts are loading. maybe an adobe servers issue.
Looks to be ok on the server end: https://status.adobe.com/creative_cloud#
Have you tried restarting Suitcase? That would explain InDesign if your font manager is hung.
yes, i did, it fixed the issue, however, i now have a co-worker with exactly the same issue
Yes, I'm experiencing the same problem since a couple of weeks/months (can't really remember when it started.) But it seems to be everytime I open a document that uses fonts that I selected in my Suitcase Fusion (21.1.1) but clearly are also available in Adobe Fonts. Instead of activating the Suitcase version it tries activating the Adobe version but that doesn't work so it keeps activating in the background... Really annoying. But is it an Adobe or Suitcase problem? I haven't given Indesign hte OK to activate the font, it starts doing this by itself???
p.s. Oh yeah, still on Mojave 10.14.6
No offense to Extensis, but it is always usually a Suitcase issue.
Auto activation bypasses your manual activation - if the font is needed in the document you are opening, Suitcase should auto activate the font and make it available in InDesign. The whole point of the feature is that you don't have to give ID the OK.
If you have Adobe Fonts active, it sounds like there is a syncing conflict between Suitcase and ID. Either way, they should auto activate without needing to hit OK - there may be a slight delay but they should drop off your missing font window.
I'd test to confirm, but I got fed up with Suitcase and moved on to Font Explorer and have been happy since.
I've dropped this question at Extensis' support as well. Seems to be a bit of a weird problem that occurs when Indesign/Suitcase/the font in question "feel like it" as it doesn't occur everytime I open these documents. Besides that I didn't get the pop-up missing font window when this occured. I only noticed Background tasks was still activating fonts when I tried exporting a PDF and that didn't appear on my desktop as fast as it should. Extensis advised to check Indesign preferences concerning fonts. Actually pretty satisfied with Suitcase for the last 13 years. Problems are mostly/often through delivered by client, incomplete or damaged fontfiles.
the suitcase fusion is failing to show/load adobe font, the below is what it looks like when it works, otherwise it does not even show in the font manager. i am not sure they are talking to each other.
