Typekit font activation issue

Hello experts! 

 

The 'background tasks' panel in InDesign is left hanging like the attached, whenever I activate any fonts within Adobe Typekit.

I've been careful to turn off auto-activation and deactivate any fonts within Extensis Suitcase to avoid conflict, and generally font activation seems to work ok. But every now and then, it doesn't, even though the fonts appear to be active within Typekit. I then activate the required fonts through Suitcase (which of course causes a conflict), and subsequently have to deactivate everything, quit out and start again.

 

This only appears to happen with Typekit fonts – example shown is Agenda, but this happens with others such as Museo Sans Rounded.

 

It's as if the Adobe services are not talking to the installed software. For context, I'm logged in correctly, with one account, to CC on desktop, and online. Two shots below are of Typekit online and CC font manager.

As we speak, things seem to be ok, apart from the background tasks panel doing its thing for no apparent reason. Even when the document in question is closed.

 

Any thoughts? Particularly any Adobe dudes out there?

 

Best,

Rob

It might be worth adding, I've tried hitting that 'refresh' button next to the red-dotted fonts within CC font manager. But it returns to the same state after a few seconds of telling me it's "reactivating...", even though, on the right-hand side, you can see it's apparently activated.
