TextMeshPro Distance Field Overlay shader invisible in HDRP

Package: SRP HD Template


Steps to reproduce:
1. Create a scene using Create -> HD Template Scene. Open the scene
2. Create a new TextMeshPro (TMP) 3D object and new TMP UI object
3. Create a new material with shader type set to TMP/DistanceField Overlay apply it to TMP 3D Object
4. Select TMP UI object and set the shader type of its default material to TMP/DistanceField Overlay
5. Observe that shader is invisible.

Expected behavior:
Working shader

Observed behavior:
The object turns invisible both in world space and screen space.

NOTE: Shader works fine on the same Unity version but without SRP.

    I'm using unity 2019.4.9f1, HDRP 7.5.1.
    If you want to render world space text at top of the screen, this solution worked for me (changing one code from existing TMP shader)

    Reproduced myself as well. This is quite inconvenient.
