How to Make a Comment / Title Bold in Instagram

Add flare to your Instagram text!

So I’ve noticed people boldtexting a lot more on Instagram, so I figured I’d tell you how one would go about doing that.

It’s fairly straightforward and simple. Navigate to Settings > General > Keyboard > International Keyboards and select “Thai:”



Once that’s done, navigate back to Instagram. Go to add a comment on a post. Begin your comment with an asterisk: * and add the new Thai character circled below:



Now, type your comment. It will not look bold until after you post it, but I promise it will work once you do!

      It should work, make sure you have a bowl of carrots in case the CD drive gets stuck.

    So this applies to when I want to bold txt in my bio?

    • ReagentX

      I don’t think so. Your full name is bold be default, I haven’t tried it with normal text.

      I believe the return key on the Thai keyboard also works to do this.

    • Stephanie Mac

      Go on notes, and then type anything out. To make the spaces press return and write something else. Copy and paste to IG and tadah!

    How do I leave paragraphs in the Instagram bio? I was told that I should press the space bar a lot of times. But it didn’t work! Please help!

    • ReagentX

      On the web version of your profile, (on your computer, go to[username] and login). Then you can edit your bio using your full keyboard on your computer. Alternately, you can use a Bluetooth keyboard with your iPhone or iPad. Hope this helps!
