Strange type behaviours, some rounded letters seem larger

I have a weird thing happening with this font. It’s Avenir. I’ve used it in the past with no issues, but this one seems to pop up once in awhile. The issue if not obvious is that some letters appear larger than the others. The ‘C” and the ‘G’ for example.

Any ideas?

This can happen when the type is used at sizes not supported in the hinting. It’s essentially a display error. When you print it’s gone. Even exporting to PNG or jpeg will fix it in some cases. Other than that, the only fix is more complete hinting.
