Variable font bug, displays differently

Hello there,

I wanted to use our font in inDesign, but the instances look like this. It’s using an intermediate master (e is much lighter, which shouldn’t be)

I wanted to use fontmake to export the font to see if it behaves the same when exported from fontmake. But it gave me another error saying that there are 2 masters with the same value, but I don’t see any masters with the same value in the Glyphs App.

{'Weight': [400.0, 400.0, 1000.0]}

Generating fonts from Designspace failed: Locations must be unique.
