Lineweight is applied to shp fonts. I prefer using TrueType fonts in linetypes for that reason. Experiment some characters like underscores (and a few TrueType fonts) which appear as lines in TrueType fonts are often displayed with lineweight but shouldn't affect your example. You could simply change the lineweight if that's an option.

 

Most users & offices have different opinions of what font is used for STANDARD text style. I'd only use text styles that identify the font like "Swiss Light" "Arial Narrow" or "Romans". That way your text and linetypes should display the same for other users.

This may sound like a simple question, but have you checked the lineweight setting of those objects?

 

EDIT - LOL tombu beat me to it!

@amb2301 Look at the OBJECT lineweight in Properties. The lineweight is set to 0.5mm. It will come out thick regardless of what you use. Change the object lineweight.

Thanks Tombu & pkenewell for looking on this post, i will try changing the font style in linetype & get back to you 

You have to use Text Styles in linetypes. You have to assign a font to a Text Style and then use the Text Style in the linetype.

 

Sadly complex linetypes were introduced in R13 and the concept of referencing fonts directly like you can in Mtext wasn't introduced until R14.
