Severity: 3Workaround is possible

"Dynamic batching: index buffer destination/source is NULL" when dragging a blank sub-sprite of a Multiple-mode sprite to the scene

1. Open attached project
2. Expand the texture
3. Drag "MetalMan_31 to the scene

The following red asserts will appear in the console

Dynamic batching: index buffer destination is NULL (first IB byte 0 count 0 first vertex 0 offset 0)
UnityEditor.DockArea:OnGUI()
Dynamic batching: index buffer source is NULL (first IB byte 0 count 0 first vertex 0 offset 0)
UnityEditor.DockArea:OnGUI()

Occurring on: 5.6.0b8 onwards till 2017.1.0a3
Not occurring: 5.6.0b7 and older

In current trunk (2017.1.0a4), the red assert becomes a yellow error "Incomplete Mesh data in Sprite. Please reimport or recreate the Sprite"

    Based on some testing if you force a reserialization on your texture assets with empty sprites in them this issue no longer happens in v5.6.0p4. My updated texture meta files now have the "serializedVersion" field set to 4 from 2. Hope this helps someone.

    The fix suggested by Crafting-Legends worked for me as well. Thank you for posting it!

    This error happened to me with blank sprites haven a tight mesh type. So a workaround for me was setting to FullRect and then restarting Unity. (Applying was not enough apparently to update the currently loaded mesh data.)
