Screenshot with LibreOffice 4.1 made on Mac OS X 10.8.4

Current behavior: Text has always a bold font weight
Expected behavior: Text should have the regular (medium) font weight like in TextEdit or LibreOffice 4.0
Operating System: Mac OS X

Last worked in: 184.108.40.206 release

I do not have Courier Std, so I cannot reproduce this behaviour. If this is a regression, maybe it may be related to the CoreText change.
Also don't have that font. Can you attach it? If that would be a copyright infringement, where is that font coming from?
The font is distributed together with e.g. Adobe Reader or other Adobe software. Please check also this wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Courier_(typeface)#Courier_Standard
I'm on Windows and I don't have that font.
anyway LibO 4.1.1 is out... try upgrading and tell us if you still have this font issue

Confirmed by Bug 68889. Looks like a regression in the Mac version of 4.1 (probably because CoreText changes).
Bug 69254 maybe also related, and maybe also Bug 67808 & Bug 67863.
Here is one more, very similar bug: Bug 71034.
I can confirm this bug still existing in LibreOffice 4.2.0 on MacOS X 10.9 Mavericks.
I use a font called "Prelude" or "Coconut", which was designed by The Font Bureau. It was used in Palm's webOS:
The smallest size is "Medium". It seems, LibreOffice >= 4.1 doesn't use "medium" fonts as the normal sized font anymore but instead uses the bold version now.
Unfortunately, the font is not free, but if interested, I can provide it - PM me.
I'm still stuck with LibreOffice 4.0 because of this bug, so I'd highly appreciate, if this could be resolved pretty soon.
Thank you very much!

Not a duplicate of 69254.
Any chance that a test document could be uploaded?
Adding keyword 'bibisectRequest'.
This regression can be bibisected with http://dev-downloads.libreoffice.org/bibisect/mac/Bibisect_MacOSX10.6%2b_lo-4.1_to_lo-4.2.tar.bz2
On OSX 10.12.6, I see Courier and Courier New in the list of installed fonts, but no Courier Std, despite having the latest version of Adobe PDF Reader.
Setting this to NEEDINFO, with the request that the original reporter :
- re-test with latest production releases of LibreOffice and report back ;
- provide a sample Writer document made with the problematic font ;
- provide a sample TextEdit document made with the problematic font

Test case with Adobe Courier Std
This is still present, see attached test case.
Note: The formatting is broken when you use the toolbar buttons. If you use the format dialog you're able to select the correct weights. However the format dialog formatting is not preserved when opening in LibreOffice 3.3 or TextEdit
I tried bibisecting with the oldest repository that cover 4.1-4.2, but the bug was present from the start.
Increasing the severity as this is a core functionality, and importance given the regression
