    Hello,

    Is there away to change text value in the timeline for TextMashPro element? I know there is one for Unity UIText element available for timeline.

    Thanks,

    John

    There isn't one I'm aware of, but it would be a great addition. I suspect it would be pretty simple to create - at least a basic version.

    Hi,

    This is kind of a work around, but, Tony Pixel Crushers has a Direct playables package for Dialogue System that allows for this - if you use the Text Mesh Pro UI Extra for Dialogue System. You can send messages through the Alert panel in a way identical to the UIText method above.

    I know it sounds like a convoluted way to get what you want but the integration between the Dialogue System, Timeline and Text Mesh Pro is absolutely awesome.

    I should mention that Dialogue System is needed for the Text Mesh Pro pack to work.
