How do you guys solve the issue that typefaces name their weights differently when applying character styles? For some fonts "Medium" is used whereas in others "Semibold" is the weight, they are equvilent to each other. This means I have to setup two character styles if I play on using two typefaces in the document. Does any body have an easier solution?

Font designers are not required to follow rules about how they name their styles. It hasn't existed in the past, and I doubt it will in the future. I'd say: Get used to it! If you like the "Medium" label use that as the name for your character style, even if the font calls the equivalent weight "Semibold" or something else.

Using groups and good descriptive names is the best way to organize your styles panels
