Sorry for answering late. The font by default is Ubuntu Medium

The "bug" of choosing Bold and it gets back to Medium is a font problem,
not ours. The reason is a bit complicated to explain and it's about the
metrics of the bold font. It's supposed that using Bold on a word processor
should work fine, but not in little sizes, because the type is not well
designed for tiny spaces, so it switches to the closer type (something like

In a few weeks the Ubuntu Font Team will release a new package correcting
some bugs (including this) as well as more types (thin, extra-bold, etc)
and designed explicitely for small sizes as well as print sizes, which
needs another type and kerning technology due the higher resolutions up to
300 pixels per inch of paper.
