Most font problems within Adobe applications can be fixed by clearing Adobe’s “font list” cache files. To remove these files, quit any Adobe applications that are currently open, and perform a search on your computer for files that begin with adobefnt. Delete any files that end in the extension .lst — there may be anywhere between two and twelve of them. Relaunching any Adobe application will cause these files to be rebuilt correctly.
Remember also that every Adobe application has its own “Fonts” folders in which fonts can be stored. If you’re having trouble removing a font that persists in the menu, check out the “Fonts” folder stored within the application’s own folder.
