Is it possible to replace an included asset with a packaged asset in an existing project?

    ...without everything falling apart. :p

    I'm using TextMesh Pro in a project and if I try to replace it with the packaged version every object lose the TMP component reference and there doesn't even seem like there is a way to manually repair them either because the packaged version doesn't include the scripts in the project folder. The only way is to add the component again and recreate it from scratch.

    Or? Is there a way?

    The TMP UPM package includes a utility "Project Files GUID Remapping Tool" which is designed to convert from the previous version of TMP to the new TMP UPM package.

    See the following post which includes directions on how to do this.
