RectMask2D stops masking, when it's child has a child with Mask and Image components inside the RectMask2d area



It reproduces when UI Object with a "Rect Mask 2D" has a child object (which is not the first child in hierarchy) which also has a Child with Image(script) and Mask(script) components. Also, there must be another UI element on the Canvas, so that object with the "Rect Mask 2D" is not the most bottom child of Canvas.

To reproduce:
1. Open "Test" scene, from ""
2. Open Game (or Scene) window and inspect, that RectMask2d is working correctly.
3. In Hierarchy find "Canvas -> RectMask -> Parent_of_Mask" and enable "Parent_of_Mask" object.

Expected result: Enabling this object does not change the way RectMask2d works.
Actual result: RectMask2d is no longer working.

Reproducible: 2017.2.0b6, 2017.2.0f3, 2017.3.0b4, 2018.1.0a1
Not Reproducible: 2017.2.0b5

Make sure Object with RectMask2D is the bottom child in Canvas.

    Unity 2018.3.0f2: Having this issue with RectMask2D in ScrollView and a nested TMP InputField with RectMask2D. Both RectMask2D seem to malfunction with enabled simultaneously.
    The proposed fix of calling Shader.EnableKeyword("UNITY_UI_CLIP_RECT") does not seem to work.

    2019.1 this bug still reproduced!
    In 2018.3 for us helped workaround with "Shader.EnableKeyword("UNITY_UI_CLIP_RECT");", but now this workaround it does not help

    Reproduced in Unity 2018.2.0b6.

    RectMask2D + TextMeshPro input field children which use RectMask2D, will bleed out the text outside the mask.

    I can still reproduce this issue in Unity 2018.2.0b6 when doing a WebGL build. Shader.EnableKeyword("UNITY_UI_CLIP_RECT"); is a work-around we are currently using, but I don't think this is fixed yet (or there is another similar issue).

    Unity 2018.2.0b6 without work-around (incorrect/no masking):
    Unity 2018.2.0b6 WITH work-around (properly masking):

    Version information from js console: Initialize engine version: 2018.2.0b6 (ac34ff94dd0f)

    BFE_GIO saved us all, this appears to be working:

    Dealing with a similar bug in 2017.2.0p2 (in our case the RectMask2D just randomly clips or doesn't clip various things). A workaround that *seems* to be working for us is to call this at startup somewhere:
