Discord Text Formatting Guide: Colors, Bold, Italic, Strikethrough

Last Updated 8/16/2019: We included an extra “Markdown Text 101” section with three awesome resources to take your Markdown knowledge even further. You’ll also find a new section on chat formatting when using international keyboard layouts. Added several “quality of life” updates to this guide.

From humble beginnings on Discord…

I was a complete newbie back then when I joined my first Discord channel.

People were typing in underlines, bolded letters, strikethrough text, italics, and even colors! “How in the world do people type in colors?!”, I thought.

I tried to type “/bold hello guys!”, but that obviously didn’t work. It just made it obvious I had no clue what I was doing.

You Can Learn Awesome Discord Formatting

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been that guy or gal (or you’re trying to avoid all the disappointment and become a Discord formatting wiz!)

DISCORD FORMATTING GUIDE PDF:

Click here to get a PDF copy of this guide that transfers over to your smartphone, tablet, laptop, or any other media!

Either way, today I’m going to show you how to type out literally every single format Discord offers.

You’ll learn the basics behind Discord’s formatting engine (Markdown & Highlight.js), basic formatting commands (bolding, italicizing, underlining, etc.), and you’ll learn how to type out text in boxes and code blocks — in color!

Save This Page as a Reference

Once you have the basics down Discord formatting isn’t too bad.

While you’re still learning the commands though, it may be a good idea to keep this page open for reference (or bookmarked).

Anyways, enough talk — let’s get formatting!

Behind the Scenes: Discord’s Text Formatting Engine

While we sit there chatting away on Discord day after day, there’s a sleek, lightweight engine working in the background, formatting all of our text.

This “engine” is called Markdown.

The Rundown on Markdown

Originally created in 2004 by John Gruber and Aaron Swartz, Markdown is a markup language designed to be lightweight and simple to read/write. It’s completely text-based and uses cleverly placed symbols to format words in bold, italics, underlined, etc.

Although it’s been most commonly used to format readme files, forum discussions, and to turn plain text into rich text in basic text editors, Discord’s developers saw its potential and brought it into the core software.

We’re going to dig into Discord Markdown in the next section so you can learn how to properly format all of your messages in any way you’d like.

Highlight.js Makes Color Possible

Before we dig into markdown I wanted to explain another neat feature the Discord developers added on. It’s a library called Highlight.js.

Now, I want to make it clear that Discord doesn’t have true full-text highlighting. You can’t say, “I want this word to be in red, and this one to be in blue!”. That kind of highlighting doesn’t exist.

What does exist for our text-coloring purposes, though, is a “hacked” version of text highlighting using syntax coloring methods from highlight.js.

Even though we can’t directly highlight text, we can create a code block in discord, point it towards a specific syntax highlighting profile included in highlight.js, and then use that to our advantage by wrapping our text in the appropriate symbols.

This will all make much more sense when we get to some juicy examples down below.

Remember This Going Forward

You don’t have to remember all those nitty-gritty details. For now, all you have to know is that Discord uses Markdown for its text formatting, and Highlight.js for code block highlighting.

I’ll show you how to take advantage of these formatting options in the next section.

How to Format Text in Discord

And now the fun begins. I’m going to show you how to bold, italicize, underline, and strikethrough text as a starting point.

We’ll start with the basics, and then move on into creating code blocks for text coloring.

How to Bold Text in Discord

To create bolded text in discord, all you have to do is start and end the bolded text with two asterisks (*).

The asterisk is SHIFT+8 on your keyboard.

If you look at the image below, you’ll notice that I put two asterisks, or stars, in front of and after the text I wanted to be in bold.

Here’s what I typed and the result it produced:

Discord Bold Text Formatting - WriteBots

How to Italicize Text (Create Slanted Italics) in Discord

To create italics or italicized text in Discord, you have to type the asterisk once again, but this time use only one asterisk.

To bold text, we used two asterisks, like this: **bold text**

For italics, we would do the same thing but with one single asterisk: *italicized text*

Again, the asterisk (star) is SHIFT+8 on your keyboard.

Here’s what I typed to get the result shown in the image below:

Discord Italic Text Formatting - WriteBots

How to Create Bold Italicized Text in Discord (Bold + Italics)

You might’ve been able to guess the markdown for Bold + Italics by now…

Instead of only one or two asterisks, it’s three asterisks.

How to Underline Text in Discord

To format our text as underlined, we need two use two underscores (__)

This is meant to be a thorough guide, so I’m including the keyboard layout for an underscore below (in case you’re reading this and have never yet had to type an underscore before!):

Discord Underscore Key, Keyboard Layout - WriteBots

I typed this to get the result below:

Discord Underlined Text Formatting - WriteBots

How to Create Strikethrough Text in Discord

For strikethrough text, we need to use the tilde (~) key.

Two tildes cross out, or ‘strike through’, the text you type.

Here’s the keyboard layout (yellow highlighted keys) for typing a tilde. You have to hit SHIFT + ~.

Discord Text Formatting Tilde Keyboard Layout - WriteBots

Here’s what I typed below:

Discord Strikethrough Text Formatting - WriteBots

Formatting on International Keyboard Layouts

A reader recently pointed out that international keyboard layouts should be considered as well. Here we make the assumption of the asterisk being “Shift + 8” and the tilde being “Shift + Backtick (`)”, but this isn’t always the case.

Here are some additional keyboard layouts that international users might encounter, and an example of where the asterisk would be on each of these layouts.

German: Shift+[+] (key right of Ü)
Spanish: Shift+[+] (key right of `^ (Spain) or ´¨ (Latin America))
French (France): * (key right of ù%)
French (Belgium): Shift+$ (key right of ^¨)
French (Switzerland): Shift+3
Italian: Shift+[+] (key right of èé)
Swedish: Shift+’ (key right of Ä)

If you find yourself using one of these alternative keyboard layouts, feel free to adjust accordingly. 

A vast majority of users typically use the standard English keyboard (which is why we accommodated it by default), but we wanted to acknowledge alternative layouts and that all of this can be done no matter what your layout is.

Combining Text Formatting Options Even Further

We can also combine the underline into bold, italics, and bold+italics.

Here’s an example:

Underlined and Bolded Text

How to ‘Escape’ Text and See All Your Underscores and Asterisks

In case you actually want to see your underscores or asterisks in a message (like in an emoji, for example), you can use the backslash ‘\’ key to skip markdown formatting and show the text just like it is.

Take a peek at the example below (notice the backslashes ‘\’ at the beginning of each character).

The excessive backslashes are needed here because I have underscores in my message.

Discord Escape Character Formatting - WriteBots

But notice that the backslashes at the end actually aren’t required if you have them all in the beginning:

Discord Escape Character Formatting - WriteBots

If I didn’t have underscores, a single backslash ‘\’ would do:

Discord Escape Character Formatting - WriteBots

That Concludes Basic Formatting

And that’s it for basic formatting. It’s pretty simple stuff, and you should have it down after a few messages.

The only keys you have to remember are Underscores, Asterisks (Stars), and Backslashes.

Advanced Text Formatting in Discord: Writing in Color

And now we get to the fun part… formatting our discord messages in color!

Once you start getting some colorful messages out there in the channels you frequently visit, you’ll start getting asked how it’s done.

We’re going to cover some basics (code blocks), and then jump right into coloring your messages! Let’s get to it!

Single Line Code Blocks in Discord

To create a single line code block in discord, you need to use the ‘tick’ or ‘backtick’ character: `.

Since this key can be a difficult key to find if you’ve never had to use it before (up until this point), I included a nice highlighted keyboard layout diagram below:

Discord Tick Backtick Keyboard Layout - WriteBots

The ‘tick’ or ‘backtick’ character should be in the upper left corner of your keyboard right under the escape (ESC) key.

Once you’re familiar with the ‘backtick’ key, let’s create a single line code block. All you have to do is put a single backtick before and after your text.

Here’s what I wrote for the example below:

Discord Single Line Code Block Formatting - WriteBots

Multiple Line (Multiline) Code Blocks in Discord

Just like the single line code block, multi-line code blocks also use the backtick (“`) character. The only difference is, instead of writing a single backtick (`) you have to write three (“`) before and after your text.

The neat thing here is that you can press enter and space your text across multiple lines, all formatted in a single multi-line code block.

Here’s the markdown for the example below:

Discord Multi Line Code Block Formatting - WriteBots

You’ll notice in the image above that we have all of our text in a code block, but this time it’s in multiple lines just like we wanted.

How to Format Colored Text in Discord

And now the moment we’ve all been waiting for… [drumroll] … Colored Text!

I was searching around the web for a good example of some colored text formatting in Discord, but couldn’t find anything clear.

There were some examples, but they were pretty hazy. I couldn’t find a single guide that clearly showed you how to format your text if you wanted it to be in a certain color.

We’re Essentially Hacking Syntax Highlighting

As I mentioned in the intro, what we’re going to be doing here is ‘hacking’ or ‘hijacking’ syntax highlighting from Highlight.js running in the background in Discord.

We have to do this because, as of writing this, Discord doesn’t have built-in text highlighting functions.

As a result, we’ll have to do a little bit of a workaround — but as long as it works, it works!

Here’s How Text Coloring in Discord Works

Since we’ll be using a workaround based on Highlight.js, here’s how it’s going to work.

We will be creating multiline code blocks using three backticks and specifying the syntax highlighting language.

We can do this by including the highlighting programming language reference right at the beginning of the multiline code block.

Just like this, for example. Here we are specifying ‘Apache’ as the syntax highlighting language:

We’ll be “exploiting” some syntax highlighting and using it to our advantage for coloring some text.

I included most of the colors you’d expect to use below, and tried to show the differences between various language references.

Limitations to this Text Coloring Method

There are (unfortunately) limitations to this method. The most common limitation being, your text has to be connected in one word in somereferenced syntax highlighting languages (not all!). 

This means you can’t type: This is a sentence.

You’ll have to type: This_is_a_sentence OR Thisisasentence.

Why is this? Well, since we’re exploiting syntax highlighting to highlight our Discord messages, we’re basically trying to make the multiline code block think that our message is literal programming code.

Most of the time the colors we want are contained in variables, which by definition, can’t contain any spaces.

One place this doeswork well is in code comments and strings. I tried to include code comments and strings in each of the colors below as frequently as possible (to make it easy to type out).

If you look closely, you’ll notice I did include some variables and mentioned that you can’t have spaces if you choose to use those formatting methods. Even then, this may still be a perfectly viable method for single words.

Anyways, that’s enough yapping from me — let’s get coloring!

How to Color Text RED in Discord

Diff Syntax Highlighting for Red (EASY)

Include dashes (-) before the line you want red colored text.

Red Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

CSS Syntax Highlighting for Orange (Red-Orange)

Include brackets [ ] around the text you want highlighted. 

Red Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

How to Color Text YELLOW in Discord

Fix Syntax Highlighting for Yellow (EASY)

In Fix, everything you type is yellow by default! This is a great, easy way to have yellow text. 

Apache Syntax Highlighting for Yellow (Limitation: NO SPACES)

Include a percent sign and right curly brace, %{, at the beginning of your text, and a left curly brace, }, at the end to highlight your text yellow in Apache syntax.

Yellow Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

How to Color Text GREEN in Discord

Diff Syntax Highlighting for Light Green (EASY)

Include a plus sign (+) before the line that you want turned green. 

Light Green Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

CSS Syntax Highlighting for Light Green

Include quotation marks ” ” around the text you want colored Light Green.

Light Green Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

Bash Syntax Highlighting for Dark Green (EASY)

Quotation marks around your text ” “

Note: This dark green color and quotation marks around your text also works in a bunch of other reference languages, not only “bash”. It works with “coffeescript”, “cpp”, and many more.

Green Colored Text Formatting in Discord - WriteBots

JSON Syntax Highlighting for Dark Green (EASY)

Just like in Bash, quotation marks around the text you want to color dark green. 

Green Colored Text Formatting in Discord

How to Color Text BLUE in Discord

INI Syntax Highlighting for Blue

Place brackets [ ] around the text you want highlighted blue.

Discord Blue Colored Text Formatting - WriteBots

CSS Syntax Highlighting (Limitation: NO SPACES)

Put a single dot (.) in front of the text you want colored blue, and make sure you don’t have any spaces in the line.

Discord Blue Colored Text Formatting - WriteBots

Color Formatting Takeaways

As you’ve probably noticed, there are limitations to using this method (such as having to type no spaces for certain colors).

But the most important thing is, we can still color our text relatively easily!

I’d recommend using the DIFF, BASH, FIX, and CSS highlighting above (for red, green, yellow, and blue respectively).

Either way, the examples above include several shades of the primary syntax highlighting colors, and let you experiment with them in your messages.

Markdown Text 101: Digging Deeper

If you want to dig into Discord Markdown even further and learn some more tips/tricks, then these are a few very helpful resources you can’t miss. 

The Markdown Tutorial

My favorite Markdown learning resource is very simply titled “The Markdown Tutorial”. It walks you through Markdown step by step with both instructions and live output of what your text will look like. This is a neat learning tool that I’d definitely recommend diving into for some deeper learning. 

The Markdown Cheatsheet

Once you’ve gone through some markdown tutorials and just want a quick reference to look back on, there’s this awesome Markdown Cheatsheet that lists every single type of formatting you’d encounter. 

The Official Discord Markdown Guide

And finally, there’s the Official Markdown Guide from the Discord Team (it’s on the discordapp.com website). It covers everything we talked about in this guide (with regards to chat formatting), but it doesn’t go into as much detail about how we actually get each type of color. It can still be a very useful reference if you’re looking for a quick refresher. 

Now It’s Your Turn

And now the ball is in your court — get out there and format/color some text!

Don’t forget to bookmark this page as a resource for future use. Good luck, and have fun!

Discord Bot From Scratch

Learn how to make a Discord Bot from the ground up by watching our free video course (nearly 2 hrs of video)!

Sours: https://www.writebots.com/discord-text-formatting/

Discord is a very well-designed application, and the majority of users will never encounter a serious problem while using it, especially if they use the dark theme. The dark theme is easy on the eyes, intuitive, and user-friendly.

With that said, some users can experience an issue with the font used across the entire application, Uni Sans. It is even used in Discord’s logo.

Here is how to change the Discord font.

Changing Font Appearance

If you find Discord’s default font difficult to read, you might be disappointed to learn that there is no way to change it.

However, there are some options you use to modify it.

Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Open Discord and go to User Settings.
  2. On the left of your screen, under App Settings, click theAppearance tab.
  3. This will display several settings allowing you to adjust the appearance of the app. Under Chat Font Scaling, there are three sliders, which we will focus on.
Discord Font Change

Chat Font Scaling

The first slider, Chat Font Scaling, is used to increase or decrease the size of the font/text on Discord. This only applies to the text in channels, chats, messaging, etc.

By default, this slider is set at 16px, which is fine for most users. If you want a cleaner appearance, we recommend 14px.

Those that prefer or require larger text should move the slider up to 20px or even 24px. Try the different sizes for yourself and see which option works best.

Change Font Discord

Space Between Message Groups

Another option that can change the appearance of text messages is the Space Between Message Groups slider. This allows you to reduce the amount of space between different message groups.

As with the scaling slider, the default option is set to 16px, which puts significant space between group messages. If you want to fit more text on your screen, choose the 0px option.

If you prefer to see less text at once, use the rightmost option on the slider, 24px.

How To Change Font On Discord

Zoom Level

Unlike the previous two sliders, Zoom Level changes the appearance of Discord as a whole, not only the messages.

The slider ranges from 50 to 200, with the default set at 100. If you want to zoom in on Discord, move the slider closer to the right. If you want to zoom out from the app, move the slider to the left. Simple!

If you ever want to change the zoom level without accessing the menu, you can use the shortcuts Ctrl + +/- or Ctrl + 0 to reset to the default (100).

Use A Different Font In Messages

If you want to send messages on Discord in a different font, you won’t be able to do it within the app itself. Instead, you need to use any of the great font/text generators that are available online.

The ones we tested include FontSpace, FancyTextGenerator, and ExoticFonts.

There are many more text generators online, so use whichever one works best for you.

To use a font generator, all you need to do is input your message on the website, select the style/font you want, copy it, then paste it into Discord.

Discord Custom Text Style

Alternatively, you can use Discord’s built-in formatting options to make some other adjustments to your messages.

Discord will offer more options to customize the font and appearance of the app in the future. Until they do, this guide will help you add some flair to your messages.

Discord Text Formatting - A complete guide to formatting text on Discord‍

A complete guide on Discord text formatting, right from how to bold, Italicize, strikethrough and underline on Discord to advanced coloring options.


Using Discord can be baffling if you don't know how it's done. You may have seen your friends and group members use all sorts of formatting tricks from a simple bold text to even coloring the font. How is Discord text formatting done and is it for everyone or limited to a few people to use?

To help you show off with cool fonts and avoid embarrassment due to not knowing what you're typing, we've put together a complete guide on Discord text formatting below. Learn everything right from how to bold, how to Italicize, how to strikethrough and how to underline on Discord to advanced coloring options.


Discord markdown - Understanding Discord’s Text Formatting Engine


Discord makes use of markdown for formatting text. Markdown is a markup language which is commonly used to format forum text discussions, readme files, and convert plain text into rich text in simple text editors.

Markdown is a lightweight language and is easy to read and write. Since it's completely text based and uses simple symbols to bold, italicize, strikethrough and underline, Discord's developers used it for the app. Discord markdown is extremely easy to use with just a few things to keep in mind.


Discord text formatting - how to format text in Discord



1. Discord bold text - How to bold in Discord


Use this when you want to emphasize the text by making it darker. This is similar to the <b> or <strong> tag in HTML.

How to bold: Place two asterisks (*) at the start and end of the text you want to make bold.

Asterisk symbol is on the '8' key, and you can press 'Shift + 8' to generate it.

You can also select the text and hold down 'Ctrl +B' (Windows) or 'Cmd + B' (Mac) to bold text when making use of Discord on PC.

Your text will look similar to the block given below.



Discord Text Formatting -


2. Discord italics - How to italicize in Discord


This is to be made use of when you want to emphasize the text by making the letters slant. Similar to the <i> or <em> tag in HTML.

How to italicize: Place one asterisks (*) at the start and end of the text you want to make bold.

While in the case of making text bold, you need to add two asterisks at the start and end of the text, italicizing text in Discord markdown requires only one asterisk.

So, similar to the above, you'd press and hold 'Shift + 8' a single time at either end of the desired text to italicize it.

You can also select the text and hold down ' 'Ctrl +I' (Windows) or 'Cmd + I' (Mac) to italicize when making use of Discord on PC.

Your text will look similar to the block given below.



Discord text formatting - discord italics


3. Discord strikethrough - How to strikethrough on Discord


When you want your word or sentence to appear as if it has been crossed out, strikethrough is used. A horizontal line passes through the center of the text. This would be the <strike> tag in HTML.

How to strikethrough: The tilde (~) key is made use of to strikethough text on Discord.

Place two tilde keys at the start and end of the text you desire to strikethough.

The tilde is on the same key as the backtick (`) on standard keyboards, to the left of the number '1' key.

Press and hold 'Shift + `' twice to generate '~~'

You can also select the text and hold down '' to strikethrough text when making use of Discord on PC.

Your text will look similar to the block given below.



discord text formatting - discord strikethrough


4. Discord underline - How to underline on discord


Emphasize text clearly by drawing a line under it in Discord, similar to the <u> tag in HTML.

How to underline: Place two underscores (_) at the start and end of the text you wish to underline.

The underscore (_) is usually on the same key as the hyphen (-).

Press and hold 'Shift + -' twice to underline text.

You can also select the text and hold down 'Ctrl + U' (Windows) or 'Cmd + U' (Mac) to underline text when making use of Discord on PC.

Your text will look similar to the block given below.



discord text formatting - discord underline


Using international keyboard layouts


Although the standard English keyboard layout does have the asterisk (*) symbol on the same as the '8' key, tilde (~) and backtick (`) on the same key and hyphen and underscore on the same key, this isn't the same everywhere.

Depending on the keyboard you make use of, the positions of these symbols will also differ. You will need to make adjustments depending on the one you use. You can see below the different positions of '*' on different keyboards around the world:

  1. Belgium (French): Shift+$ (key to the right of ^¨)
  2. France (French): * (key to the right of ù%)
  3. Switzerland (French): Shift+3
  4. Germany (German): Shift+[+] (key to the right of Ü)
  5. Italy (Italian): Shift+[+] (key to the right of èé)
  6. Spain (Spanish): Shift+[+] (key to the right of `^)
  7. (Latin America)): Shift+[+] ((key to the right of ´¨) 
  8. Sweden (Swedish): Shift+’ (key to the right of Ä)

Combined text formatting in Discord


To combine two or more types of formatting, you'd simply have to add the symbols for each type before and after the desired text.

Note that adding either one before the other isn't going to make a difference, as long as the order is retained on either side. In other words, if you first enter two asterisks to make the text bold and then two underscores to underline it at the start of the text, you'd have to close the underline first by adding two underlines before the two asterisks.

Example, to bold and underline, either of this is correct:



discord text formatting

A variation like this, however, is wrong and disrupts the results. Only the first one will then be applied.






1. Discord bold and italics - How to Create Bold Italicized Text in Discord


Place three asterisks (*) at the start and end of the text you want to bold and italicize in discord markdown.



Discord text formatting - discord bold and italics


2. Discord bold and strikethrough - How to Create Bold Underlined Text in Discord


To make text bold as well as strikethrough it, place two asterisks (*) as well as two tildes (~) at the start and end of your desired text.



Discord text formatting - Discord bold and striketrhrough


3. Discord bold and underline - How to Create Bold Underlined Text in Discord


To make text bold as well as underline it, place two asterisks (*) as well as two underscores (_) at the start and end of your desired text.






4. Discord bold, italicize, underline and strikethrough - How to apply all basic Discord text formatting options


To apply bold, italics, strikethrough as well as underline, you would need to simply add all the applicable symbols and ensure that they are at the same position on either side of the text.






‘Escape’ text and see underscores and asterisks


If you don't want the formatting to be applied, and rather want the symbols around the text to be sent without the formatting, then you'd have to make use of the backslash (\) to avoid markdown formatting.

Note that every formatting style would have to be canceled out individually.

As in, if you're adding two underscores (_) at the start and end of the text, you'd have to add a backslash on any one side of the text and negate the effect of two underscores. If you cancel out the formatting at the front, it is safe to assume that it won't be applied and you do not have to mirror the backslashes after the text.

However, in the case of italicized text, you'd have to cancel out the formatting on both sides as the backslash would otherwise be a part of the text.






Discord Spoiler text - How to spoiler in Discord


Make your text look really cool and as though there’s a hidden message in it by using spoiler text formatting.

How to add spoilers: Place two vertical bars (|) on either side of the text you wish to add the spoiler formatting to. You can also press the forward slash (/) in the text-box and select ‘/spolier’ from the options shown.

On most keyboards, vertical bars are on the same keys as the backslash (\).

To add spoilers, press and hold the ‘Shift + \’, your text will look similar to the block below.



Discord Text Formatting - spoiler

When you send the text, it will be shown as a black block, and only by clicking on it will you be able to see what is written below, in a way, unveiling the text or giving spoilers.

Pro-tip: Typing the forward slash key into the keyboard will also show you a number of other inbuilt shortcuts. Check them out!


Discord Highlighted text - How to highlight in Discord


Another easy way to make a message standout is to highlight the font. This makes it look like there’s slight spacing between the letters, like the monospaced or typewriter font.

How to make text highlighted: To highlight your text, add a single backtick on (`) on either side of your text

The backtick is to the left of the number ‘1’ key as stated above in the strikethrough formatting.

Your text will look similar to the block given below.



Discord Text Formatting - highlighted


Discord Quote text - How to quote in Discord


Quote a message on Discord by adding a quote bar to the left of the message block. A thick vertical line will be added to the left of the text making your text stand out.

How to quote text: Add the ‘greater than’ (>) sign followed by a space. Now type your text. Subsequent lines in the same message will also have the quote bar. You can press the ‘Backspace’ key to remove the quote formatting.

The ‘greater than’ (>) symbol is on the same key as period/full stop (.) on most keyboards.

Your text will look similar to the block shown here.



Discord Text Formatting - spoiler


Discord Boxed text - How to box text in Discord


You can place some of your text in a box, i.e, add a padding to the entire line of text. This will make it appear as though your text is placed inside an embossed box.

How to box text: Add three backticks (`) below and after the text. Note that this will box the entire line, and any other text you type into the text box will be sent as a new line without the box.

As told above, the backtick is to the left of the number ‘1’ key.



Discord Text Formatting - boxed


Non-embedded URLs: How to send non-embedded URLs in Discord


Usually, when you send a link on Discord, the page will be embedded into the text sent. You can avoid this by sending a non-embedded URL on Discord.

How to avoid embedding a URL: To send a non-embedded URL on Discord, add a lesser than (<) and greater than (>) sign on the left and right sides of the URL. You can also do it the other way round, but then, when you send the URL, these symbols will be shown.

The lesser than and greater than signs are on the same keys as the comma (,) and full stop/ period keys (.) on most keyboards.



Discord Text Formatting - highlighted


Discord Invisible text: How to send an invisible/ blank message in Discord


If you want to send a blank message on Discord, with no text, then you may have seen that just hitting on your spacebar and sending it isn’t possible. There’s an easy way to send an invisible text, though.

How to send an invisible text on Discord: Underscore (_) + space ( ) + underscore (_) is the way to go to send a blank text message.

As shown in the image below, your message will look invisible.

The underscore (_) symbol is on the same key as the hyphen (-) as told earlier.



Discord Text Formatting


Discord color text


Now that we've learnt basic Discord text formatting, the next step would be to take it a step higher and make the font even cooler by making use of colors. For this, we'd first have to understand how to add code blocks in Discord.


Single line code blocks in Discord


Single line code blocks are, as the words directly suggest, used when you want to add one only line of code.

Use a single backtick (`) on either end to create a single line code block. As mentioned above, the backtick (`) and the tilde (~) are on the same key, to the left of '1', on standard English keyboards.

Your input will look similar to the block given below.






Multiple line code blocks in Discord


Multiple line code blocks are made use of when the code is more than one line

Three backticks (`) on either end will create a multiple line code block in Discord.

The input you enter will look similar to the block given below.






Highlight.js


Highlight.js is the library made use of by Discord to add color to text.

Discord doesn't have true full-text highlighting, and you cannot directly add a symbol on either side of the text you want to color. Instead, you'd have to create a code block in Highlight.js, point it towards a specific syntax highlighting profile and then wrap text in the appropriate symbols. Through this, we are actually hacking syntax highlighting


Formatting colored text in Discord


You will have to create multiple line code blocks and then specify the syntax highlighting language.

Make a multiple line code block by adding three backticks, and add the reference to the highlighting programming language right at the beginning of the code block.


Drawbacks:


There are some limitations to this method. Some referenced syntax highlighting languages require that the text isn't spaced out. You'd have to then write continuous words with no spaces between them.

This is because the colors are mostly contained in variables, and since we want the multiline code blocks to think that the text we enter is actual code, we are faced with this limitation. By definition, variables aren't supposed to have spaces.

Spaces are allowed in code comments and strings, though.


Discord red text: How to color text red in Discord



Highlighting text red in Discord using Diff syntax


Specify the reference highlighting programming language (Diff) in the first line of the code block and include hyphens/ dashes (-) before the text you want to make red.

Your code block will look something like this:






Highlighting text orange-red in Discord using CSS syntax


The reference highlighting programming language is CSS, and you'd have to include brackets [] before and after the text you want to make orange-red.

Your code block will look like this:






Discord yellow text: How to color text yellow in Discord



Highlighting text yellow in Discord using Fix syntax


The reference highlighting programming language, Fix, makes everything you write yellow color by default. No other code is required.

Your code block will look like this:






Highlighting text dark yellow in Discord using Apache syntax


The reference highlighting programming language, Apache, comes with the limitation that you're not allowed to use spaces in the code.

Other than this, it works in a similar manner as Fix, and everything you write by wrapping in the Apache syntax is shown in yellow. The underscore is used to identify the different words as we can't use spaces.

Your code block will look like this:






Discord blue text: How to color text blue in Discord



Highlighting text blue in Discord using CSS syntax


This imposes a limitation again, and you cannot use spaces between the text.

You have to include brackets a single dot (.) before the text you want to make blue.

Your code block will look like this:






Highlighting text blue in Discord using INI syntax


The reference highlighting programming language is INI, and you'd have to include brackets [] before and after the text you want to make blue.

Your code block will look like this:






How to highlight text blue in Discord using ASCIIDOC syntax


Using the ASCIIDOC syntax enables you to send the text with spaces, but you need to put at least 2 hyphens (-) on the line below the text.

So, to highlight the text blue in this way, type in the three backticks, then ‘asciidoc’ and follow with your text on the next line. On the line after this, enter at least 2 hyphens (you can add more to make the text look better) and then close the code block with three backticks on the last line.

Your code block will look like this:

Discord green text: How to color text green in Discord



Highlighting text light green in Discord using Diff syntax


You have to include a plus sign (+) before the line you want to make light green

Your code block will look like this:





Highlighting text light green in Discord using CSS syntax


You have to include quotation marks (”) before and after the line you want to make light green, after specifying that the reference syntax is CSS.

Your code block will look like this:



Highlighting text dark green in Discord using Bash, JSON, coffeescript, cpp syntax


You have to include quotation marks (”) before and after the line you want to make dark green, after specifying the reference syntax.

Your code block will look like this:












Highlighting numbers green in Discord using CSS Syntax


You can highlight only numbers green using the CSS syntax, and other symbols and text highlighting isn’t possible.

After the three backticks on the first line of your code block, type in ‘css’ and on the next line, you can type in numbers, which will appear green. Note that if you follow this by text, it will appear in the default Discord text color. Follow with the three backticks to close the code block.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


Highlighting text Cyan in Discord with the YAML Syntax


The reference language used for highlighting text cyan is YAML, and you do not have to leave any spaces in the text.

Type in three backticks on the first line, followed by ‘yaml’. Then on the next line, type your text, close with the three backticks on the third line.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


Discord Orange Text: How to color text orange in Discord



Highlighting text orange in Discord using arm syntax


Make your text orange in Discord using the ‘arm’ syntax. With Arm, too, you cannot make use of spaces in your text.

All you need to do is enter ‘arm’ on the first line of the code block after the three backticks, and then type in the text on the second line with no spaces. Follow with the three backticks to close the code block.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


Highlighting text orange in Discord using CS syntax


One way of highlighting text orange in Discord, without the limitation of having to leave spaces is to use the CS syntax.

Type in ‘cs’ after the three backticks, and on the second line, enter a hash (#) symbol before typing the text. Follow with the three backticks on the third line.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


Intricate colored text formatting and color combinations in Discord


So far, we’ve dealt with highlighting an entire text in a single color. Now, in the next section of Discord text formatting tricks, we will see some cool ways to highlight words, add specific colors to specific words, numbers, etc.


Fix syntax to highlight the text yellow and cyan


The fix syntax, as we’d seen earlier, is used for highlighting text yellow. However, we can also add cyan text in the same block.

To do so, start with the three backticks, followed by the name of the syntax language, fix, and on the next line start typing your text, this will be in Yellow. Now, you can enter an equal sign (=) and continue typing. The text to the right of the equal sign will be cyan in color.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


YAML syntax to add gray colored text in Discord


Using the yaml syntax, you can combine either green and gray, or use just gray text.

Type in three backticks, then yaml. After this, on the next line, you can start with your text. This will be green. Yaml syntax makes text grey after a hashtag, so you can either avoid the green text or combine it with the grey by putting a hash (#) symbol.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


Diff to combine light green and red text in Discord


We have earlier made text red and light green separately using diff. Adding light green text to the same block is also possible.

After the three backticks, type ‘diff’. To make a line red, start that line with the hyphen or minus (-) symbol. To make a line light green, start it with the plus symbol (+). Close with the three backticks.

Your code block will look like this:



Discord Text Formatting


CSS syntax to combine orange-red and blue text


Using CSS syntax, we can combine orange-red and blue text.

The same rules apply, after the backtick, add the syntax name, css, and then type the text on the next lines. If you want to make the text orange-red, type it between square brackets [] and if you want to make it blue, type after a dot/full-stop/period, with no spaces. Close with three backticks.



Discord Text Formatting


Elixir syntax to combine white, green, yellow, orange and cyan colors in a text on Discord


The Elixir syntax can be used for multiple modifications as follows, by entering ‘elixir’ after the three backticks.

Normal text will appear white.

Certain keywords, like ‘do’ ‘if’, ‘then’, ‘do’, ‘while’, ‘for’, ‘in’ and ‘and’ will appear green without any modification required.

Numbers will all be cyan.

Hash (#) will make the text appear grey or faded out.

Starting a word with a dollar sign ($), will make the word yellow, provided that it’s not following a hash (#).



Discord Text Formatting


MD syntax to combine colored text in Discord


Similar to Elixir, MD syntax also has a number of Discord coloring options. Type in ‘md’ after three backticks and check them out:

Most text will be white. 

Add a hash (#) at the start of the line to make the text blue.

Add a lesser than and greater than sign on either side of the text on a line, to make the first word blue and rest yellow. Do not leave a space after the symbol.

Add square brackets [] followed by circular brackets (). Now if you add text in both brackets, the text in the square brackets will be cyan and that in the other ones will be red. You do not need to have text in the second set of brackets for the text to appear in Cyan, just the brackets are enough. The other way doesn’t work.

Make sure to close the code block with three backticks.



Discord Text Formatting


ELM Syntax to combine colors in Discord


To combine colors using the ELM syntax, as usual type three backticks and then ‘elm’.

Any word starting with a capital letter is going to be yellow.

If you do not leave spaces and continue typing, the whole line will be yellow. If you do leave a space, the next text will be white if it starts with a small letter.

Any word on a new line starting with a small letter will be blue.

Numbers will be in cyan.



Discord Text Formatting

Do close the code block with three backticks as shown.

Discorddoesn’t let you use custom or external fonts, which means it is a little bit older in technology. However, it won’t stop you from having fun with your friends. Today, we will show you seven ways you can change your font style and make it different.

You can use a discord font generator to use fancy fonts, but most of them are glitched. So, I will suggest you don’t use them.

Instead, use text formatting techniques allowed by Discord to write server announcements, send messages, and overall look cool. So read this blog till the end to use different fonts in Discord without having any trouble.

How Do You Write in Different Fonts in Discord?

Now we will explain various ways to write in different fonts in Discord quickly:

Bold

You can bold your complete text or just a single word of your text in Discord. It’s super easy by using two asterisks at the front and two at the end of your desired message/word to emphasize it.

E.g., Hey, I am **PaperBoy** (You will write this)
Result: Hey, I am PaperBoy (Your friends will see this)

Italics

Everyone likes to italicize some words to give a taunt or express feeling in the Discord message, such as Sighs, Hush, and so on. You can easily change your font to italics using one asterisk at the front and one at the end of your word/message.

E.g., I am going to sleep *Stop me* (You will write this)
Result: I am going to sleep Stop Me (Your friends will see this)

Underline

You can use the underlining to mention something important. Generally, discord server owners use the Underline feature to post announcements and highlight the important stuff. You can do it too by using two underscores at the front and two at the end of your word/message.

E.g., We are creating a new __NFSW__ channel in our server (You will write this)
Result: We are creating a new NFSW channel in our server (Your friends will see this)

Bold Italics

Sometimes it’s fun to mix stuff, and Discord allows us to use multiple formatting techniques together. This creates a new type of font which you can use for writing the messages. To bold and italicize your text together, you need to use three asterisks at the front and end of your text.

E.g., ***Hey, I am PaperBoy, check out my text, bruh*** (You will write this)
Result: Hey, I am PaperBoy; just check out my text, bruh (Your friends will see this)

Underline Italics

Of course, if you can use Bold+Italics, you can use Underline+Italics as well. So put two hyphens and an asterisk in the front, and end your message with an asterisk followed by two hyphens.

E.g., __*Hey, I am PaperBoy, just check out my text, bruh*__ (You will write this)
Result: Hey, I am PaperBoy; just check out my text, bruh (Your friends will see this)

Underline bold

Okay, So, this one is the last combination of two formatting methods. This one is pretty useful for marking an important text. If someone ignores an underlined bold text, I swear that person is a Zombie.

To do this, you will have to put two hyphens and two asterisks in the front, followed by two asterisks and two hyphens at the end of your message.

E.g., __**Half of my heart is in Havana**__ (You will write this)
Result: Half of my heart is in Havana (Your friends will see this)

Underline Bold Italics

You can fuse all the formatting attributes to create the ultimate font in Discord. So, use two underscores and three asterisks in front and three asterisks, and two underscores at the end.

E.g., __***Hey, I am PaperBoy, just check out my text, bruh***__ (You will write this)
Result: Hey, I am PaperBoy; just check out my text, bruh (Your friends will see this)

Wrapping Up

Now you know all the ways you can change your font in Discord. Go and try them out on your favorite servers with your friends. Discord is a fantastic app, and you can use different ways to make your message completely different from others.

Fonts discord chat

Fonts are absolutely essential when it comes to UI design and digital communication. It can either make or break a design, no matter if other aspects are on points, such as a good user interface or logo design.

Text is considered as one of, if not the most important thing when it comes to design. It makes it easier for users to read the interface and also makes things like menus and user interface much more user-friendly and easier to read. Choosing the right fonts can be very important, and you also have to keep in mind that the font is appropriate for the small screen.

Generally, it is believed that serifs are better and easier to read than sans serifs for smaller sizes especially. While this is often the case, it is not a rule for every design. There are many considerations you have to make when you are choosing the right font – the readability of the font, design characteristics, using a beautiful calligraphy font, the nature of the website, and more.

Side note: Do you want to increase your chances of getting a better design job? Get a Graphic Design Specialization from CalArts (California Institute of the Arts). Or maybe you could be interested in a web design specialization. Web Design: Strategy and Information Architecture is a course with great reviews.

Tips for choosing the right font

Choosing the right font for you might be a very important question, and it is one of the most important issues that a designer can face. Here, we will provide you with some useful tips for choosing the right font for your project.

  • The font should suit your content

This one might be straightforward, but the importance to choose the font to suit your content is massive.

  • Create a hierarchy using sizes and weights

Creating a hierarchy in your projects is quite important; fortunately, you can use sizes and weights to do this.

This is the last step, and sometimes this is where projects are distinguished from being good to being superb. Add a more personal touch to your projects to make it more “human”.

All Discord Text Tricks (2021)

Discord Fonts (𝖈𝖔𝖕𝖞 𝒶𝓃𝒹 𝕡𝕒𝕤𝕥𝕖)

Welcome! This page allows you to generate Discord fonts that you can use in your chats. Discord doesn't allow you to change the font by default, but using this generator you can get around that so that you can post more than just bold and underlined text in your chat messages. Using the above forms you can convert text into all sorts of different fonts including Old English / medieval / gothic style text, cursive text, double-struck, and many more. Here are some examples that you'll see if you put some normal text in the first input box:

  • 𝔡𝔦𝔰𝔠𝔬𝔯𝔡 𝔣𝔬𝔫𝔱𝔰
  • 𝓭𝓲𝓼𝓬𝓸𝓻𝓭 𝓯𝓸𝓷𝓽𝓼
  • 𝖉𝖎𝖘𝖈𝖔𝖗𝖉 𝖋𝖔𝖓𝖙𝖘
  • 𝒹𝒾𝓈𝒸𝑜𝓇𝒹 𝒻𝑜𝓃𝓉𝓈
  • 𝕕𝕚𝕤𝕔𝕠𝕣𝕕 𝕗𝕠𝕟𝕥𝕤
  • 🅳🅸🆂🅲🅾🆁🅳 🅵🅾🅽🆃🆂
  • ᗪ丨丂匚ㄖ尺ᗪ 千ㄖ几ㄒ丂

The default Discord text stylings allowed are just those available through the markdown syntax. You'll notice that you can do much more than that using this generator! Another thing that you can't change on Discord is font size. So by default on Discord, small text is not possible, but using this generator, you can create ₛₘₐₗₗ ₜₑₓₜ that you can use in your messages! :D

How does this work? Well, all the characters that you're reading right now are Unicode characters. That is, they're specified in the Unicode standard - a universal language for converting binary into textual characters. This discord font generator creates fancy text by using some of the 100,000+ characters other than the ones on your keyboard. Some of the symbol alphabets used were introduced to the Unicode standard because they were needed by certain groups of people. For example, the 𝖔𝖑𝖉 𝖘𝖙𝖞𝖑𝖊 text was introduced because certain academics needed to use those style symbols to represent certain things in their equations. So there are other "official" symbol alphabets in Unicode, but you've probably noticed some ㄖㄒ卄乇尺 fonts that don't quite look like the normal Latin alphabet. These ones are "pseudo-alphabets". These just use characters that look like normal alphabet letters, but are actually symbols from random languages or other Unicode character sets.

So there you go! I hope these Discord fonts are useful for all your Discord chat shenanigans, and please do let me know if there's any features/fonts that are missing by posting a comment below!
