Can't add 'TextMeshPro' component to Text (TMP)
« on: June 21, 2022, 09:01:47 AM »
I'm trying to set the text of a Text (TMP) UI element using "Set TextMesh Pro Text" action but it says I should click to add TextMeshPro component to it but I should not because it already has TextMeshPro component. Even if I click on that red message, it gives me the following error:

Can't add 'TextMeshPro' to Text (TMP) because a 'TextMeshProUGUI' is already added to the game object!
A GameObject can only contain one 'Graphic' component.

Please see the screenshot below:

Why does it try to add a TextMesh Pro component while it already has that component?

Hi.
There are to types of Text Mesh Pro copmonents , one for world and one for UI (Canvas)

Replace the Action with Set TextMeshProUGUI Text for the UI version

Thanks, but I cannot find the "Set TextMeshProUGUI Text" action neither in the Ecosystem browser nor the Action Browser.
