a workaround is to change the default font to another font ( like "liberation mono" ),

in my system the default font for kate is "monospace", with "monospace" I can't see the underscore when I type an underscore, I need to insert a line break in order to see it

in my system "monospace" is linked to "Bitstream Vera Sans Mono Roman", which belongs to ttf-bitstream-vera package

the bug occurs also with "dejavu mono" font

I made a test,

the first test :

- I use the "hack" font, the bottom of the character is not visible

the second test :

- I still use the "hack font" but I have inserted a line break : the bottom of the character is now visible,

I use the "oxygen" theme for plasma 5, maybe this theme has a bug ?

see the screenshot in attachment

one important thing : the bug occurs when the font size is lesser than "12",

for example with size 9 : the bottom of the character is not rendered

Please don't report issues upstream and downstream simultaneously. Once it is fixed upstream, you can report it here to request backporting the fix.
