Text turns to black for UI in editor after making a build



The old-style UI Text (not TMP) will turn black after completing a build.

Repro steps:
- open this simple project ('')
- notice the text is white
- select the text in the Hierarchy
- build and run
- notice the text turns black
- text will stay black when entering play mode
- if you make a change to the Text (like add a new component) it will change back to initial colour

Reproducible with: 2019.2.13f1, 2019.3.0b11, 2020.1.0a13
2020.1: all versions affected
2019.3: 2019.3.0b5 -> 2019.3.0b6 regression
2019.2: 2019.2.0b10 -> 2019.2.0f1 regression
2018.4: no versions affected
2017.4: no versions affected

    Try and apply the font material to the text component. That fixed it for me :)

    Why is this only fixed in 2020.1?
    It's still happening in the latest 2019.3.14.

    This bug is incredibly annoying. How is it even allowed to remain on the latest build of Unity 2019.3?
