Actually the problem is this; a few versions prior to 10.8/CS6, Fontexplorer would automatically launch the application if it wasn't running to match up any missing font. I'm not sure if its because its a older version and/or adobe has ceased letting the application fire open when photoshop/illustrator is triggered but it almost 100% of the time I get this error it's because Fontexplorer isn't open yet and it's trying to launch it but its no longer allowed to launch the application... thus the 'Strtble Error.' If you have Font Explorer opened and try the same file you won't get the error, and viceaversa you'll get the error if you don't have it open.
I'm still running an old version of Font Explorer (3.1) with CS6 I assume all of my issues are contributed to that. I'm not sure if the same thing happens on new versions of Font Explorer. (I have a fear of updating since it destroyed all of my folders the last time I updated.)
I'm sure it's because of Adobe Typekit which cannot be disabled no matter what you try. I have the same issue with Illustrator. I use Font Explorer Pro, and Adobe Typekit supersedes it, now, in all my Adobe CC software. Kinda like what Microsoft did with switching Internet Explorer with your favorite browser when you loaded their newest OS until they were taken to court.
This is Ben from Typekit. I'm sorry that you ran into trouble with this. Some users have reported an issue in the current version of InDesign which can temporarily deactivate installed fonts. Please note that this is actually unrelated to Typekit; it just happens to occur at the time you see our logo in the missing fonts window.
The InDesign team is still investigating the factors which trigger this situation, but the basic issue is this: the Missing Fonts dialog causes fonts which are managed through Extensis Suitcase and FontExplorer to not auto-activate correctly, or for managed fonts to even be visible in the application after upgrade.
In both cases, the InDesign Missing Fonts dialog appears to override the Font Management tool dialogs that allow users to manage fonts within the Application.
If you use Suitcase Fusion, there is a simple configuration change needed:
1. close the Missing Fonts window
3. go to the Type menu and select "Suitcase Fusion 5".
3. From the submenu, choose "Library" and then check "All Libraries" so all fonts can be auto-activated as needed
4. from the Type menu, select "Suitcase Fusion 5" again, and then "Check Document’s Fonts" to activate the missing fonts,
If the font is being managed by Suitcase, it will find and update the fonts.
In FontExplorer, if your managed fonts are not visible in InDesign after upgrading to InDesign 9.2
Go to FontExplorer/Tools and select
1. Clean System Font Caches (this will require a system reboot)
2. Clean Application Font Caches
On non-Mavericks systems, you will need to de-activate and then reactivate font protection. Launch a terminal window and enter
sudo atsutil fontprotection -off
sudo atsutil fontprotection -on
Relaunch InDesign. your managed fonts should now be visible and auto-activation should work.
The fonts can always be activated from within the Font Management software itself, even with the missing fonts dialog open.
The InDesign team is looking into the issue to determine the root cause as well; our apologies for any inconvenience it causes in the meantime.
