V-Fonts default master must be Regular (for MacOS apps: TextEdit, Pages, Key..)

In Mac OS (10.15 and below) native apps: TextEdit, Pages, Numbers and Keynote, the default weight gets intermingled with another weight, if default is not set to Regular.
This is unfortunate, since not every variable font has a master on the Regular weight.
We’ve locked at a variety of open source and commercial variable fonts on the marked. Only when Regular is set as default, all works fine. After a lot of testing, the conclusion is, that there is no way to fix this on the font side.
Luckily it appears to be resolved in MacOS Big Sur.
thanks for reporting this issue
