There's a simpler solution here. Go to typekit and deactivate the font that's causing the issue and then simply reacitvate it. Problem solved.

For Adobe Photoshop CC in windows 10.

Both are in the latest update.

I face the same problem today.

To fix it, same as @vladb 's answer.

1. C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\Adobe

here i see 2 adope photoshop files

i. 'Adobe Photoshop 2020'

ii. 'Adobe Photoshop 2021'

i am not sure which one should i delete so i rename both files by adding dot '.' in front of it.

when i run photoshop, the apps automatically create a new folder 'Adobe Photoshop 2020' in the same dir.

thanks sire @vladb !

All you need to do is disable the last few fonts you used in Creative Cloud Font Manager. Save your file. Then open CC Font Manager and reacivate the fonts. Open file. Done.

I got this issue and was unable to save my document because of it, after a short 10 minutes panic, I realised it was clearly related to the font I had recently actuvated from Adobe Fonts. So tried simply disactivating and reactivating the font and it fixed the issue.
