Remove or relocate annoying Adobe Fonts Apps
It like it when Adobe provides me free fonts. I hate it when they install them in strange places and you can't seem to find where that strange font that you never ever use resides. Or where that triple version of Courier is hidden ? Well, look no further:

Library/Application Support/Adobe/Fonts --> this one is obvious !!

But they can also reside in:

Library/Application Support/Adobe/PDFL/6.0/Fonts

I have these font folders, but the fonts don't appear to show in the fontbook application. Are they still active or whats up? Why are they in this awkward location?

Fonts in mentioned folders are not system-wide available. They're only used by Adobe Applications. However you shouldn't delete the folders or any other content than the fonts themselves. Adobe Apps need the rest to function properly

Firstly, this is not an issue outside of Adobe applications. Fonts in these locations are used only by Adobe apps.

Also, for 'proper' functioning of Adobe apps (they'll still run), you should NOT remove Adobe Sans, Adobe Serif, Myriad or Symbol, at least for Illustrator. Other Adobe apps may need other fonts.
