Can't change the font-weight in open caption
When directly changing the font-weight in open caption window (not the import or export settings), it seems that some font-weight options cannot be selected.
For example, Ping Fang SC has 6 font-weights, but only the semi-bold is selectable. When I try to use another font-weight like light, it shows that "light" has been selected, but the change of the caption does not present in the monitor, and when I re-open the open caption window, it goes back to semi-bold again.
We have completely redesigned the captioning workflow in Premiere Pro version 15.0. You will see many dramatic workflow improvements. Please update to the latest version.

Had this issue a long time. What finally fixed it for me (Windows 10, Premiere 22.1.2) was converting missing TTF fonts to OTF. Other Adobe apps (Illustrator, Photoshop, After Effects) didn't seem to have this issue with certain TTF fonts but Premiere doesn't seem to like them much.

I have the same issue too. Which is really annoying, it means I can't get my subtitles to match my brand guidelines.

"The issue rises only on a Windows computer, on Mac there is no issue at all" but in fact I met this problem on Mac.

I have the same issue for years already and through out many version of Premiere Pro. I actually don't remember when was the last time this worked properly.
