Discord has better audio and video quality than other community management tools. Still every discord server has multiple text channels. But there’s no visual interface on formatting texts on Discord.
In text channels, sometimes you have to format the texts for their importance, visibility or highlighting.
This tutorial is about how to bold in Discord, part of our Discord Formatting series. The same process works for both mobile apps and desktop apps.
How to bold in Discord
In your text message, put your text between the two pairs of asterisks. Just like **text**
Now if you want to make the text both bold and italics, just enter your text like this ***text***
If you only want to italics a text, enter your text like *text*
Now you may want to underline a bold text, then type your text like __**text**__
The final step is to underline a bold text in italics. For that, type __***text***__
So, everything in a nutshell:
- To bold text, type **text**
- To bold in italics, type ***text***
- To do only italics, type *text*
- To underline bold, type __**text**__
- To underline bold italics, type __***text***__
