If you’re a Gaming user and play a lot of online desktop games, you must have heard about Discord. It is a leading platform for players to communicate and strategize with friends via separate servers. You can use either text message or voice call to chat with others. Apart from gaming, it is also used for business purposes. Available for both desktop and smartphone platforms (Android, iPhone and much more), the application has become popular in recent times. While communicating with other players, it is essential to know how to create different text formats like strikethrough/cross out Text, bold, underline and more on Discord.
What is Discord Markdown?
Discord uses a simple plain text formatting system called Markdown. It adds some flavour to make your sentences or text stand out. Add a few characters or symbols after your desired word to make them stand out.
How to Cross Out/Strikethrough a Text or Words in Discord
To strikethrough or cross out a text or words in discord, you need to use the tilde (~~) symbol twice at the start and end of the sentence or word. You can find this symbol below the Esc key on your PC keyboard. If you’re a mobile user, you can find this character under the symbols menu on your keyboard.
Other Text Formatting Options
#1 To create a Bold text: Use double asterisks (**) at the start and end of the desired word or sentence.
#2 To create an italicized text: Add a single asterisk (*) at each side of the desired word
#3 To create an underline text: Add double underscore (__) before and after the text.
In addition to the above-mentioned formats, you can use three (***) at the start and end of the word to create the combined effect of bold and italicized text.
