Unable to delete font file

I am designing fonts. I need to frequently replace old versions with new one and use the fonts in Illustrator. Sometimes (frequently) when I try to delete a font, the font disappears in Fontbase, but the font file stays in Fontbase folder. It is possible to delete the file only after exiting Fontbase. Exiting Illustrator doesn’t help.

  • Windows 10
  • 20H2
  • FontBase version: 2.16.4

Are you deactivating the font before deleting it?

I found that issue too, I got round it by closing all applications, go to font location, Close FontBase and delete font file.

Another reason it might be in Windows font Folder or activated by another Application.
