    Any prefab instance that contains a TextMeshPro UI text seems to be considered permanently different to its root prefab.
    Click the Overrides button on the instance and it will always show any TextMeshPro UGUI script as being different even though they are the same
    2018.3.8

    This behavior was addressed in version 1.4.0 of TMP. The only (known) remaining issue which is outside the control of TMP is the Mesh Filter which shows up in the override because the mesh is not persistent but tracked by the prefab system because of the mesh filter component. The Prefab team is currently looking at ways to handle similar cases.

    Thanks, I am still using 1.3.0 because the package manager is a bit vague as to 1.4.0 (it says 1.3.0 is up to date and 2018.3 verified, 1.4.0 is available under the version drop though)

    So is 1.4.0 still under development or will be marked as the up to date version for 2018.3? Why is TextMesh Pro1.3.0 not marked as update available in 2018.3.8, which version is it?

    I am not sure why 1.4.0 doesn't show up / marked as an update. But 1.4.0 will be / should get verified shortly.

    Unless I mark a release as -preview, you can assume that release is not a beta / development versions.

    Hi!

    Necro-ing but any update as to why it hasn't been marked as verified yet and if it has any sort of implications I should be worried about?

    Thanks!

    Version 1.4.1 should show up as verified in 2018.4.3f1 which is when it got included alongside the Editor. So if you are running a previous version of 2018.4, the package is available but since the Editor manifest predates this inclusion, it doesn't show the package as verified.

    This is a release version and not a preview. That is not to say it is bug free as I am near releasing version 1.4.2 which includes fixes, improvements and few new features but that version is better than 1.4.0.

    There is a significant difference between 1.3.0 since 1.4.0 included the new dynamic SDF system. Version 1.4.1 and 1.4.2 are incremental releases and I recommend to always upgrade to the incremental releases. However, I would always recommend reading release notes / sticky posts prior to upgrading between minor revisions meaning between 1.2.0 / 1.3.0 / 1.4.0 / 1.5.0.
