    Ive been trying to accomplish the seemingly impossible task of making small text look good, and during the process the textmesh pro font creator just stopped working.

    When creating a font everything looks like its going fine, but the actual created sdf file isnt generated correctly. Its missing the source file font entry. When trying to assign this "broken" file to textmesh pro object, it just seems to fall back on the default font.

    Trying to manually set the source font seems to do nothing.

    I have uninstalled everything related to text mesh pro and reinstalled multiple times and nothing is fixing the issue

    Are you trying to creating the Font Asset using the Font Asset Creator or did you create it via the context menu and then trying to change the Generation Settings?

    I used Windows --> TextMesh Pro --> Font Asset Creator

    edit: And now i used the context menu and it worked ( i didnt even know that was a possibility).
    Still, the above method seems to have broken for whatever reason

    I am still trying to understand the steps you took that were not working. Can you provide a list of these steps or a video showing these steps?

    Make sure you are using version 1.4.1 with Unity 2018.3 / Unity 2018.4 or 2.0.1 with Unity 2019.x.

    Thank you.
