BUG: Font visual position on screen not the same between Mac and Windows?

I have the exact same file open in the exact same version of XD (latest) on both my Mac and my PC. For some reason, even though the text in the design is in the exact same position, and nothing is different, there is a visual alignment issue going on. The text does not look like it is in the exact same place on both OS's. That text is in an ideal spot on the Mac, but it looks slightly offset on windows even though it is in the exact same position without any changes. I'm not sure why this is the case. This is happening for every piece of text in the document, not just these 2 examples that I have highlighted in attached screenshots. Look at every other piece of text in those screenshots. You will see that they are not aligned the same.

 

I have also tried re-saving the file on Windows and opening on the Mac, and the text is still aligned as I want on the Mac but not on Windows. I plan to start working on this project on Windows now but I do not feel comfortable with doing so if I know that font will not be aligned. 

 

The font I'm using is Sofia pro and that font is an Adobe Font. Could this be just some weird issue with the typeface itself, because it does not appear to happen with local fonts that I use on other projects.
