Writing text in Unity


Writing text in Unity isn't that easy, at least if you want to generate text with single gameobjects to be displayed in 3D and not only as a flat UI text. Every single letter must be dragged and dropped to its place to form a word.

Personally I was frustrated and didn't find a solution on the internet, so I decided to write this small script on my own which generates text in the editor while you are typing as you can see in the animation. For this example I used the letters from the Unity Asset Store package "Simple Icons - Cartoon Assets" (https://www.assetstore.unity3d.com/en/#!/content/59925). Maybe you will find this helpful or has more ideas to improve it, if so then please let me know.😉

A detailed description how to use this small script can be found in my repository on GitHub (https://github.com/isenmann/UnityTextGenerator)
