In some cases, it is also necessary to use an additional character for the action to be performed correctly. If there is no such combination at the beginning and end of the text, it will not be formatted.

    As mentioned above, you must use characters before and after of writing a text. However, using colored fonts in Discord is still not as practical as it should be.
