Unity editor does not support Hindi characters



When entering Hindi characters into string fields in the inspector they all appear as question marks. You can still paste the letters after entering them somewhere else.

    You can check out this new asset, works with both Text and TextMeshPro. Cheapest and Best one on the Asset Store. Even works with the Sanskrit language.

    take the hindi text in a txt file saved with Unicode encoding and not ANSI (which is default in notepad)
    then import it to the unity and read hindi from it
    ? question mark comes due to the encoding issue

    you can copy and paste hindi directly too to text box just need that it is copied from a text file saved in Unicode encoding.

    This is really embarrassing for unity that it doesn't support any Indian local languages properly even in unity 5.3.5. :(
