    I've noticed in Unity 5 that the Preview pane doesn't appear to have any lighting (other than very dark ambient light). In Unity 4 there always seemed to be a fixed directional light associated with the Preview as there was a nice "bright spot".

    Does anyone know if this is configurable in any way? It's not something that I've ever stumbled across if it is.

    I used to use the renders in the Preview pane to create item icons (example below), but can't do that now.

    using latest (2019.1.6f1) but I still have the same problem. I did find that if I open the project UI Elements project from Github it is OK. When I export everything under Assets and import the package to my existing project it is still dark. so thing in my project setting but don't know what. I think there is no light in preview scene but I don't know how to add one.

    edit: I had build setting for WebGL set, switching to stand alone (osx, Pc , linux) turned the light for the preview box back on.
