Different char "m" in Ubuntu font

Asked by BranKo on 2014-10-29

I like Ubuntu font but letter 'm' in some sizes id shown differently.
It is possible to view at ubuntu page http://font.ubuntu.com/ at Ubuntu Medium is upper side of letter m flat. But all other preview is shown correctly. Is it bug or feature?
This deformation is only on some sizes...

Please can you take a screenshot of precisely what you're seeing.

If you take a look at http://font.ubuntu.com/ (chrome, firefox without zoom) and scroll down to Ubuntu Medium.
Look carefully at letter m (upper edge is flat - without rise).
If you zoom in at least to 125% rises appear, the sam if you zoom out at least to 50%.

What one sees is dependent upon a lot of variables (browser version, zoom level, font rendering style, screen size/configured DPI, hinting).

This is why we need to a screenshot to know *precisely* what your configuration is showing.

Lets convert this to a bug report, so that we can use the "add attachment" option.

Please could you attach the two screenshots (one at a time), using:
