Warning: Make sure that you never press the § key twice in a row. This turns text invisible, and can make it impossible to change your username. Read this to reset your name.
0.11.0 provides the ability to chat and write signs with fancy and coloured text. It’s really easy to do too!
Simply type the section symbol (§) followed by the colour or style’s code- e.g. “§9This text is blue” will become “This text is blue“.
Typing that fancy symbol is slightly difficult.
Android: Using the common Google keyboard, find the ‘¶’ key. Hold your finger on that, and select the ‘§‘ symbol. It will type an invisible §, and then your next letter will also be invisible. After that, you can type your message!
iOS: Using the default iOS keyboard, find the ‘&‘ key. Hold your finger on that, and select the ‘§‘ symbol. It will type an invisible §, and then your next letter will also be invisible. After that, you can type your message!
You can even stack values, so to make “bold red text” you just type “§l§cbold red text”. If you wish to change the style halfway through, just just stick another code in- e.g. “§1this is darkblue how§6ever this half is gold” becomes “this is darkblue however this half is gold“.
