How to Format Text on Skype
If you want to impress your friends with text formatting on Skype, you’ve come to the right place. Formatting text on Skype can be done quickly and easily by using a few simple techniques. In this blog, I’ll go over everything you need to know in order to format text on Skype.
The first step to formatting text on Skype is to use the right symbols and keyboard shortcuts. To bold your text, use two asterisks (**) before and after the text. For example, if your text was “Hello World,” it would look like this: **Hello World**. To italicize the text, use one asterisk (*) before and after the text. Thus, “Hello World” would look like this: *Hello World*. You can also use keyboard shortcuts such as Command+B and Command+I (on Mac) to easily bold and italicize your text.
Another way to format text on Skype is to use special formatting codes, e.g. Skype codes. To use these codes, simply type the characters that begin with \ and end with \ – for example, \b\ for bolding and \i\ for italicizing. Each code must be used before and after the text.
Learn How to Style Your Text in Skype
Gone are the days of plain, boring text messages. With Skype, you can make your conversations more visual and personal by learning how to style your text. In this article, I’ll be providing you with tips on how to style your Skype text, so you can make the most out of your conversations.
- Boldface: You can boldface text by putting “**” (two asterisks) before and after the word, phrase, or sentence you want to bold. This applies to both one-on-one conversations and group chats. For example, you can type “**Hello, how are you?**” and it will appear bolded.
- Italics: To italicize a phrase or sentence, you should use the underscore sign “_” before and after your text. For example, you can type “_Hello, how are you?_” and it will be italicized.
- Strike Through: To mark through a word or phrase, you need to put a tilde sign “~” before and after the text you want to cross out. For instance, typing in “~Hello, how are you ~~ ~” gives you Hello, how are you (with the text crossed out).
- Emoji: Emojis can be used to express yourself in a much more visual way and add a bit of humor to your conversation. Simply type in the specific emoji you need to use and it will automatically appear in your conversation.
- Quote: If you want to quote something from an article or conversation, you can use the “>” symbol before the text and it will give you the quote effect. For example, you can type “> This is a quote” and it will look like “This is a quote”.
I hope these tips are useful in styling your Skype text and making your conversations more lively and expressive.
Mastering the Skype Text Formatting Tricks
If you use Skype for text message conversations, you know it supports basic text formatting, like text color, bolding and italicizing. But did you know that there are some formatting tricks you can use to make your Skype conversations stand out even more? In this blog post, we’ll explore the different text formatting techniques available to you in Skype, and pull back the curtain on some of the hidden ‘tricks’ you can use to make your Skype conversations even more fun and engaging.
One way you can spice up your Skype conversations is to use bold, italics, and strikethrough formatting. To format your text in bold, simply surround the words that you want to be bold with two asterisks (**bold**). To format it in italics, you can use one asterisk (*italic*) and for a strikethrough text, you can use two tildes (~~strikethrough~~). You can also combine different format types, such as bold and italics, to make your text stand out even more.
In addition to using basic text formatting, you can also use emoticons, smileys, and symbols in your text. To use emoticons, simply type “:emoticonname:” and Skype will automatically transform it into an emoticon of your choice. If you’re looking to add a smiley or symbol to your conversation, you can use the “^” symbol followed by a number between 0 and 99. For example, ^64 will be replaced by the number 64 symbol.
You can also liven up your conversations by sending animated GIFs. GIFs can be used instead of emoticons and can help express a sentiment or feeling that words alone can’t. To send a GIF to your friend, you can either copy and paste a URL of the GIF or click the “+” button in Skype’s chat window, select “GIFs” and browse for a GIF of your choice.
These are just some of the things you can do to make your Skype conversations more fun and engaging. With these tricks and techniques, you’ll be sure to wow your friends in your Skype conversations!
