Text Mesh Pro only visible in 2D mode/views WHY????

A previously perfectly working text mesh pro object is no longer visible in 3D views.

Why would this happen?

Still can be seen in 2D views, during game play mode, etc… just not in 3D views or via the camera.

Can’t find what setting has done this.

Please help!!!

I had this problem and it turned out the Z scale was 0 on the object with the TMP. (This happens when you assign the scale with a Vector2 instead of Vector3)

Setting the scale to anything but 0 made it visible again.
