Sprite asset references are missing after upgrading

Asset - Importers


Some sprite asset references are missing after upgrading a project to 2019.1.0a10 (and occasionally a9).

Reproduction Steps:
1. Open the attached project in 2019.1.0a9+
2. Observe that many sprites are missing from many game objects

Note that if opening the project in 2019.1.0a8, this isn't an issue, and opening the project in a9 after it's been opened in a8 doesn't show the issue either.. however then proceeding to open it in 2019.1.0a10 always demonsrates it.

Reproducible in versions 2019.1.0a9, 2019.1.0a10.
Not reproducible in versions 2018.3.0b11, 2019.1.0a8.

    I was able to fix this or a similar issue in my project using this pair of scripts:

    Surprisingly no response here on this issue, where as I see the internet is full of this issue and I am facing the similar issue today. I could see all my prefabs and UIs were perfect in the editor.

    Later when I build and ran on device realize some of the images / sprites were not shown, then looking back to unity those prefabs shows missing sprites.

    I reverted back to one of my good backup, then built it again same issue ??????? What is this ???? How to avoid this ?

    When comes to development in Unity the productivity become ZERO most of the times. Its big pain using such kind of game engine, where as supposed to the most reliable solution for mobile games.
