How to Change Your Font in Discord
By default, Discord app uses the Uni Sans fonts across the platform. The Uni Sans family is also widely used on the internet, however, some people do not prefer their UI with these fonts in chats. And although Discord app does not have yet a feature that you can alter Discord text font directly, you can change the font in text messaging by using the Discord font generator where you can write/type your characters and choose different fonts that you like. You can then copy and paste selected text or sentence on the Discord chat.
You can choose a different font every single time and create fancy text and special characters to send to your peers.
How to Use Discord Text Formatting
The Discord app uses Markdown – a markup language that enables users to alter texts using a simple syntax format. Various symbols are used to prompt the Discord text formatting such as bold text, italicized text, underlined text, and strikethrough text.
Here’s how you can utilize Discord text formatting:
Creating bolded text is easy. Simply put two asterisks (**) on either side of your message. You can use this format for emphasis in a message.
Example: **bold text**
You can create italicized text on Discord by putting one asterisk (*) on either side of your message. You can use this format to denote particular words or phrases.
You can underline a text by adding two underscores on either side of your message. You can use this format for highlighting important words.
Example: __underlined phrase__
You can strikethrough text by putting two tilde characters (~~) on either side of the text you want to strikethrough.
How to Use Code blocks
Another way to highlight your text message on Discord is by using a code block and it’s very easy to do. You can do so by adding two backtick characters (`) on either side of the text.
Example: `code block text`
You can choose different colors on code blocks using syntax codes and symbols. More of that here
