The same font behaves differently between documents

I have 2 indesign documents: 1) created by another designer, 2) created by me

They both use the font Neutra text set to "book", but they look different from each other. I have been through every single setting I can find but they still look different with "everything" set to the same.

 

Could someone suggest some solution here?

I would like the text in both documents to look like it does in version 2

Addition: It seems that when I make a new document the font behaves as in version 2.

So somehow I guess some setting or error in version 1 affects the font.

well, version 1 has smaller leading and tracking, this makes all the text to look darker. If you wish, you can set them evenly and look what's happen

Thanks for the reply but I don't think this is the explanation.

Tracking is 100% in both versions.

Leading is almost identical and setting it to identical values does not change the problem.

 

Any input still very welcome as this is quite a problem for me.

The situation is getting a bit absurd.

Now in the document with the font behaving as I wish, part of the document has changed to this bold-looking font. See this image. All settings I can find are equal for these two pages.

Possibly it could be related to this since I had a semi-transparent image in the document previously. Though it is described since 2011, so I would hope Adobe has fixed these issues since.

What OS are you on? Is there a difference in the font appearance when you zoom in both documents to 400% or higher?

I'm on windows 10.
The difference in font appearance shows everywhere:
-at any zoom setting
-in preview/presentation mode
-in exported pdf format

At times I can make the bold-looking effect go away for a few seconds if I go to the end of a paragraph of text and press enter, but only for a few seconds. And selecting the paragraph and applying the paragraph style without any bold effect does not affect the paragraph in any way.
