GUI text won't show up [Solved]
« on: April 13, 2013, 11:02:41 PM »
I've been researching this quite a bit now. I haven't been able to find any exact instructions on how to display text on the gui, but from what I can find, it seems like I'm doing it correctly.
I would assume GUI Label is the action you want to use to display text, but I can't get it to display text. It displays images just fine. I've also tried setting a GUI Skin.
Is there anything I'm missing?

Oh, I had no idea that the transform position affect the GUI text. Wow, 2.5 years of using unity and I've never messed with the GUI Text component. Lol, thanks :)
