Title: TextMesh Pro Addon
Post by: Smolli on November 07, 2014, 05:58:18 AM
Hi there,

having bought TextMesh Pro, because of it's superb text quality and possibilities I tried it with Playmaker. Unfortunately only the GUI-part is accessible. I could do it in uscript, but it's too expensive for me and I don't like the long compile times after every change.

So I was hoping that a TMPro-Addon could be created :)

Thanks and keep the good work going!

Hi,

 you should contact TextMeshPro author and see if he's willing to provide PlayMaker support, in which case redirect him to me and we'll take it from there.
 
I made a trello task  (https://trello.com/c/si2FW54p/104-textmeshpro)so people can vote up.

 Bye,

 JEan

Hi,

 not that I am aware of. I would contact the author of TextMesh Pro, maybe we can do a joint effort to provide support for this.

 Bye,

Hi!

I just saw that you have moved this from "Wish List" to "To Do List" Are you going to make actions for TextMesh Pro?  :)

I saw on the asset page to not update from the previous paid version to the new free pro version. So be aware there might be some differences when it comes to the actions/code.

afaik, textmesh pro is going to be standard in Unity, so it might go through major API changes soon

Hi,

 Not necessary if they want to honor existing projects, If textMesh Pro API is well done, it would be unnecessary to change what works, hopefully...

 Bye,

I am about half done creating the actions for TMP, as it is on the store free now. I will be releasing them soon in one form or another within a week.

I have created playmaker actions for textmesh pro.

Its available from my Patreon account for 5$ for the whole set.

It includes 25 separate actions that control virtually every aspect of textmesh pro, including their custom shaders (the best part).

One to two tutorial videos will be out in the next few days as well.

Basic Actions:

 Set Text
 Set Color
 Set Font Style
 Set Font Asset
 Set Font Size
 more...

Advanced Actions:

 Set Auto Size Text
 Set Auto Size Text Container
 Set Extra Padding
 Enable Pro Kerning
 Enable Override Tags
 Enable Wrapping and Overflow
 Set Material Preset (pending)
 Set Margins
 Set Text Alignment
 Set Spacing Options
 Set Text Alignment
 Set UV Mapping Options
 Set Sorting Layer
 more...

Shader Properties

  Set Shader Properties Bevel
  Set Shader Properties Face
  Set Shader Properties Outline
  Set Shader Properties Underlay
  Set Shader Properties Glow
 more...

Hi!

Cool! Do you have a link where I can buy it?

Hi.

You can buy it from my website here: https://www.dumbgamedev.com/post/textmesh-pro-custom-playmaker-actions . Cost is $6.50 USD

Or you can join my Patreon account, for $5 USD http://patreon.com/playmaker

($5 gets you each months action set, $10 gets you that months plus the past months actions set. It is changed at the end of the month. Basically its a way to support ongoing development through monthly support).

I will add it directly to the Unity store, but that could take 1 - 2 months. Its a slooooow process.

Hi everyone. Textmesh Pro for playmaker has now been release for free (all the actions included). I created a new thread about it here to keep things clean and in the release section of the website. You can get the download link there, as well as watch the tutorial video: http://hutonggames.com/playmakerforum/index.php?topic=15008.0
