    Unsure if this was not fixed at all for OnTriggerExit, but as HOTTABYCH mentioned this is still present in 2018.3.9

    This also happens when you disable the collider. OnTriggerExit2D is not called at all, though OnTriggerEnter2D is called when you enable the collider.

    I would love to know something about Unity's thoughts on this. This would be a very useful thing to have.

    I presume it is intended, since the object didn't really exit, it just disappeared. Plus the fact that this happens during Physics update, whereas the destroy can happen in any phase.

    But it would be really nice if there was an OnTriggerDisappear() that would be called when the collider is destroyed or disabled, or the game object it is on is disabled.
