    I have created a text editor for my game to write stories inside it, basically, it generates a JSON file at the end which we can use in our game to create an interactive story.

    In 2017.4 it was working fine, after upgrading to 2018.4 as soon as I write <link> in Inputfield it gets invisible.

    My question is how can I make the link tag visible in Inputfield?

    What version of TextMesh Pro are you using with Unity 2018.4?

    The word <link> is a Rich Text Tag so if you have Rich Text enabled on the Input Field, it will consume the tag. Ie. Make it become invisible like any other tags.

    Haha Thank you so much, I should have thought about this, but I then thought that maybe something has gone wrong while upgrading.
