    In Unity 5.0, any time I save a scene all my dynamic fonts disappear. If I disable then re-enable the gameobject holding them in the editor then they re-appear. Wasn't seeing this in Unity 4.6. My submitted bug for this got closed as a duplicate of this one. Don't seem related to me.

    The reproduction steps are definitely a reliable way to reproduce the issue. I have seen the same symptoms happen randomly while running my game. The only way to ungarble the text when it gets this way, I've found, is to change the text string or font size, causing the glyph texture coordinates to reflow.
