    Today Unity announced at GDC 2017 the acquisition of TextMesh Pro which is now available on the Asset Store for Unity 5.3.4+

    First time users of TextMesh Pro should take the time to watch the Font Asset Creation and Working with Material Preset videos as they cover important aspects of working with TextMesh Pro.

    There are also several addition videos available in the same YouTube Channel covering most of the key features available in TextMesh Pro. The TextMesh Pro package also includes lots of examples covering these key features as well. These examples are located in "TextMesh Pro/Examples/Scenes/...".

    You can also find the online documentation for the TextMesh Pro here.

    Should you have any questions or run into any issues, please take the time to review the product FAQ as well as perform a quick search on the TextMesh Pro user forum. In the event you are unable to find the information you seek, then please feel free to post here in the Unity UI forum. Please add the <TextMesh Pro> prefix to these posts.

    *** IMPORTANT NOTE ***
    For compatibility reasons, users of the paid version of TextMesh Pro SHOULD NOT update to the free DLL only version available on the Asset Store. Updates to the Paid version are available on TextMesh Pro user forum. See details

    Although the current TextMesh Pro user forum will remain active for users who previously purchased TextMesh Pro, it will not be possible for new users of the free Unity release to register and post the TMP forum.

    As mentioned above, please feel free to post in the Unity UI section of the forum here.

    Release 1.0.55.0b10 of TextMesh Pro is now available.

    Please read the Release and Upgrade Notes before updating to this new release and always be sure to backup your project first.

    These new releases should be available on the Asset Store within the next few days.

    Since there is an issue with the Asset Store Tool which prevents uploading packages for Unity 2017.1 to the Asset Store, here is a link to download the latest release for Unity 2017.1.

    Since the Asset Store Tool still hasn't been updated for Unity 2017.1, here is a link to this latest release for Unity 2017.1.

    Please read the Release and Upgrade Notes before updating to this new release and always be sure to backup your project first.

    Although the releases for Unity 2017.1 and 2017.2 will be available on the Asset Store, here is a link to download those directly.

    TextMesh Pro Release 1.0.55.2017.1.0b12 for Unity 2017.1

    TextMesh Pro Release 1.0.55.2017.2.0b12 for Unity 2017.2

    Please report any issues in this section of the user forum.

    *** Reminder ***
    As per the Upgrade Note part of the Release Notes, before importing the new release of TMP, you have to first remove the previous version by deleting the "TextMesh Pro" folder.

    Be sure to back up any files or assets you may have saved inside the TextMesh Pro folder hierarchy (you should not have but just in case) before deleting the folder. Be sure to review and note any changes you may have made to the TMP Settings file, Stylesheet and other assets.

    Until TMP is part of the Unity installer, as you upgrade to new major releases of Unity (ie. 5.5, 5.6, 2017.1, 2017.2, etc.) you will also need to keep updating TMP to the matching release for that version of Unity.
