Hi Tammy, 

to check your problem I had to buy one font style, I choose the "Breuer
Text regular" font. 

Now, after checking the font info, it is clearly a mistake in the font
definition. Although the style name is "Regular", the font weight is set
to "medium". 

If this is a problem, you should contact your font dealer or the maker
of the font. Of course the setting could be modified with a font
program, but this would be against license agreements, I guess. 

best regards -

> · There are other fonts in this family with "Medium" in their names, such as
