Custom font (Unicode) vertical alignment is wrong on "Text" component



Text using custom fonts set to Unicode is aligned wrong on Text components in 5.3 (Too high on Y).

Repro Steps:
1) Open attached project and scene "Test"
2) Observe that the text in object "Text" should be center aligned horizontal and vertical but is too high on the vertical.

Regression from v5.2.2f1

Workaround: Use Dynamic characters

    This is still not fixed in 5.3.4p1 for uGUI(Text).

    I have contacted to the Font developer which is using in my project. However font developer said "Our font data has no problem. Instead Unity has problem i think so."

    Take a look at the metadata for the font. If there's a field for "use2xBehaviour 1" try changing that to a 0 and reimporting the font. Different fonts use their ascender field to represent different values, such as the top of the cell bounding box, the height of capital letters or something else. This can cause difference in vertical alignment between fonts. The use2xBehaviour controls how this value is determined from the font; if it is set the ascent value is determined from the cell height of the specified characters (which usually doesn't account for things such as diacritics, and will result in the text being placed higher than it should).

    If you have a Custom Font with Custom Set try to rebuild texture:
    - remove one character from Set
    - press Apply
    - bring back that character
    - press again Apply.
    It helped in my case.

    Actually this fix is on the patch release :v
    They released the 5.3.2f1 without the fix and the 5.3.2p1 with it.
