Blurred text with World Space UI?

    Hey guys.

    I didn't find anything on this in the FAQ and I've followed the manual on how to set up a world space ui, but I must be missing something very crucial since the text components look blurred when I try to use them inside the canvas? Using the same font with a regular Screen Space - overlay canvas doesn't have the same issue. Is there something I can do to fix this? The project I'm working on is in 2D, if that is of any importance.

    I've included a sample project which you can download here, and i've also included screens below:

    Have you tried increasing the "Dynamic Pixels Per Unit" value on the Canvas object? The Canvas object should be a parent of your text object. I believe it defaults to 1, and usually upping it to 10 will fix this problem for me.

    I just had this issue and figured it out. Try scaling down the textbox as much as possible and then increasing the size of the font.

    Thanks @soulareus. I had to set "Dynamic Pixels Per Unit" to same value as "Reference Pixels Per Unit" (100 in my case which is the default I think).
