In Project Settings window, add OpenUPM as a scoped registry or if you have already added it, add the new scope to it.


Then in Package Manager window, change scope to My Registries. Select "RTL Text Mesh Pro" package and press Install.


The sample scenes and demo resources (fonts, shaders, etc.) are included in the package as a .unitypackage file. You need to import those into your Assets folder to use them. From the project window navigate to the package folder and double click "RTLTMPRo-demo-resources" file to import these assets into your project.

    • English, Arabic and Farsi numbers are in NumberRanges.txt file
    • Arabic tashil are in TashkilRanges.txt file.

Usage Description


When checked, English numbers will be converted to Farsi numbers. When unchecked, English numbers will be converted to Arabic numbers.

Preserve Numbers

When checked numbers will not be converted.

Force Fix

RTL Text Mesh Pro does not fix texts that start with English characters. Checking this checkbox forces RTL TextMeshPro to fix the text even when it starts with English character. Multiline English texts will have problem on components that have ForceFix checked.

Fix Tags

When checked, RTL Text Mesh Pro will try to fix rich text tags.

Known Issues

  • Fixed in latest version. For older versions follow the steps below We need to override the text property of TextMeshProUGUI. But the text property is not defined virtual. You need to manually make the property virtual.
    • Open TMP_Text.cs from TextMeshPro source code
    • add virtual keyword to text property.
    • Open RTLTextMeshPro.cs and uncomment the top line where it says //#define RTL_OVERRIDE
    • Now you can use InputFields and Dropdowns.


All contributions are welcomed. Just make sure you follow the project's code style.
