From the description of the font it's intended to be a headline font - not body type.
It may be something to do with how the font was built.
Did you get the free version or did you buy the font?
The font is free to use with Donations via Da Font - but you can buy the font on MyFonts.com.
It's my experience that free fonts don't have all the instructions for embedding, or viewing etc. in them. It's almost always better to buy the fonts.
There are few things in the InDeisgn Preferences
Interface>Live Screen Drawing change to Delayed or Immediately - see if that makes a difference.
Type>Automatically use Correct Optical size
When you zoom in and out the preview has to be redrawn and the accuracy will depend on your monitor resolution—which is very low relative to print—and the quality and style of the font. See hinting:
To get an accurate view of alignment you have to zoom in.
All the Adobe apps, and others with zoom-ability, exhibit this to some extent. The variable size and placement of glyphs and other forms on the screen can't aways fall in direct alignment with the pixel grid. When they don't, you see that funky disfigurement. You just have to remember, it's only only a product of the view zoom and position at that particular moment.
