Sometimes you may need to highlight a message or a word within a message that you have sent to make it more important or stand out from the rest of the text. In this case, similar to how we do on websites or in documents and works, we can put bold on Telegram. You can do it with a word, a phrase or a single letter. It will take only a few seconds to do it.
Using the @Bold command before your message you can automatically convert it to bold. It is one of the commands that Telegram includes to make it easier to access everything in just a few seconds. This command allows us to write an entire message in bold, using it just before what we are going to write. Just put @bold in the Telegram message box and then write the message you want to send. It will automatically be written in bold and you can send it to the person you want. You will see that the label is written on the message you have sent “Via @bold” but it is sent as you have chosen.
Of course, there is a drawback: you will not be able to edit the message because it has not been sent by you as such but through the bot included in the application. Another problem is that you will not be able to send the message with just one word in bold and the rest don’t. That is, you will have to put the @bold code at the beginning of the sent text by Telegram but you will not be able to place it in the center to send only one word of the phrase you want. This will limit you to highlight a word within a long message, for example.
The best solution to the previous problem is to bet on a kind of code similar to the one we use in WhatsApp. That is, you can use a series of symbols before or after the phrase or word that want to mark it in bold.
To do so, simply write the message you want in the Telegram advantage in the chat where you want to send it. Select the phrase or word you want and write two asterisks at the beginning and end of it. You can mark as many words as you want in the same paragraph. Just go typing and placing ** just before and after whatever you want to highlight. As an example, it would look as you can see in the attached photographs: a message with ** bold ** highlighted in so many words** however you want to add in the Telegram chat.
Through the menu
Another useful option to choose what you want to send in bold and what not, solvingor @bold’s problem that includes the whole message, is to use the Telegram menu in the same way that we use in other messaging applications. Compose the full message on the “Message” screen in Telegram. Once you have the sentences written, just long press on the word you want and slide the marker if you want to select several words or phrases.
Once you select them, you will see a pop-up menu with three options: Select all, Cut or three dots to access more options. Touch on the three points that you will see on the right side and a new drop-down will open in which you can choose. The first of the options allows you to select “bold”. The word will automatically be in this format and you will be able to repeat the process as many times as you want in the same message, selecting individual words from the same paragraph.
It is not the only format you can access. Beyond the bold in Telegram you can also italicize, monospaced, underline or strike out as appropriate in each message. From the last section, using the Telegram menu, you can choose the format you want as appropriate at all times. You can also have specific codes to do so they will be different from the asterisks for bold, for example.
