We have a corporate font which is behaving perfecly elsewhere, but fails to recognize regular (and bold), detecting only italic and bold-italic styles.
Steps to reproduce:
Try to define a style.
Shows only italic and bold-italic
Detect or at least accept "Normal" or "Regular".
Operating System: Mac OS X
Version: 22.214.171.124 release
Which font it is? Without this information it is not possible to investigate.
How work other fonts ?
Best regards. JBF

Don't know which developer might be knowledgable in this area, font support on OSX using Apple's new API is afaik incomplete / not fully implemented.
Alex: Since you marked all the bug reports as duplicates of this one, maybe you could give more details about what's common to them. Currently, this report is much less detailed than the duplicates, and the font needed to reproduce is not easily available. Bug 71034 for example contains many more technical details and provides a reproducer with free/standard fonts.

Not being a developer, I could well be wrong, but it seems to me that the common issue here is incorrect weighting of a fairly large number of font families that occurred somewhere between 4.0 and 4.1 release, particularly with bold weights.
All I know is that this issue has been with us on Mac since the transition between 4.0 and 4.1 and has had no takers thus far from any dev. If others deem it appropriate to reset the main bug to another one, then who am I to argue.

You are. Stop messing around.
Adolfo, I am not messing around. If that is how you consider my input then so be it, but I'm not going to stop just because you seem to take askance at the reports I either file or intervene in. Consider yourself more knowledgeable by all means, but dissing the non-dev people who attempt to help out in QA is not going to move this bug further towards resolution. Or perhaps you are implying that my place isn't here ?

LibreOffice without Fira Sans Medium
This bug is still affecting versions 126.96.36.199 and 188.8.131.52.beta_2.
Attached are screenshots of "Font Book" and LibreOffice 184.108.40.206 where you can see that the "Medium" variant of "Fira Sans" is missing in LibreOffice (although working everywhere else). "Fira Sans" is a free font from Google, you can download it to reproduce there: https://www.google.com/fonts#UsePlace:use/Collection:Fira+Sans.

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
With the move to harfbuzz and the recent coretext changes made in 5.3, shouldn't we be asking people to retest with current production release and reporting back ?
Duplicate of Bug 35538.
Still valid for 5.3.4.
The freely available Overpass typeface from Red Hat has enough weights (8 plus italics) to clearly demonstrate the problem.
What happens with typefaces like this is that some of the weights will fail to show up in the font selector in LO. And of those that do show up, some will randomly produce the wrong weight. Testing just now, I'm missing "Extra Light" and "Heavy" entirely. "Thin" and "Light" both produce the the same weight.
As another example, I have the commercial typeface Akagi in a five-weight configuration. The heaviest one (Ultra) will not show up in LO. Using the second-heaviest (Extra Bold) actually produces Ultra instead. Disabling Ultra in Font Book makes Extra Bold work correctly.
