How to change Font Style on Discord
To change the fonts on Discord, you can adjust the scale or use special websites to change the color and style.
- Change the scaling of Discord fonts
- Change the font style for messages
- Add color to your fonts
1] Change the scaling of Discord fonts
One of the first solutions to try is changing the font scaling on Discord. The app makes it possible for users to scale the font up or down, and this can be done on both desktop ad mobile devices.
On the desktop
Open the Discord app, then click on the Gear icon.
Next, please click on Appearance via the panel on the left.
From the right pane, scroll down until you see the header, “Chat Font Scaling”.
Here you can make the font larger or smaller by dragging the slider to the right or to the left.
If you want to further customize the fonts, then from the same page, look for “Space Between Message Groups” and “Zoom Level”.
On mobile devices
Open the Discord app on your Android or iPhone device.
Tap the Appearance option via the profile page.
Via the Appearance menu, please zoom in or out of your phone screen by using the “Zoom Level” slider.
Folks who want to use smaller fonts for their chats can take advantage of the Classic Chat Text Size” option right away.
2] Change the Discord font style for messages
Discord doesn’t give users the option to change the font used in the app, but folks can indeed change the font styles for messages. To do this, you must generate the text in a different form outside of the app, then copy and paste the text into Discord.
For example, you can use tools such as Font Generator Guru, FontSpace, LingoJam, and even Microsoft Word.
3] Add color to your Discord fonts
In terms of adding color to your Discord fonts, you can do this but with code blocks. Bear in mind that when you customize the text using code blocks, the font will change to Consolas each and every time rather than the typical gg sans font.
Now, to get this done, you must add three backticks before and after the text. Once done, the message will transform into a code block.
In terms of changing the font color, simply visit Rebane’s Discord Colored Text Generator website.
From the website, choose the color you want to use, then type the text.
Finally, copy the text and paste it into the Discord message box.
Hit the Enter key to send the message with colored text to whomever.
