I upgraded to Godot 4, and my RichTextLabel doesn’t display anything, can’t find any answers as to why?

There could be a number of reasons:

  • Check “Fit Content” property is on

  • Make sure your bbcode tags are properly closed

  • Check for Minimum Size problems

  • Check Autowrap mode

  • Turn off Scroll Active

  • Turn off Clip Contents

  • Enable expand flags

  • Parent Control is squishing it

“Fit Content” does nothing.

I don’t know what “bbcode tags” are, I don’t think I’m using them.

I set the minimum size to be the same as size; doesn’t do anything, what am I supposed to do with it?

I set “Autowrap” to every option and it did nothing, what am I supposed to set it to?

Both “Scroll Active” and “Clip Contents” were already off.

It’s probably a parent node/container preventing the text from showing.

Best bet is to add a new RTL and work with it. Start from scratch and maybe you can see why the converted RTL isn’t working.

yup, no idea what went wrong but it seems like i just have to remake it from scratch, thanks for the help!

P.S. how do you add an outline? i swear it’s changed…
P.P.S. Nevermind figured it out last night.
