Solutions

As an alternative to the methods presented above, as well as to implement the task on a computer, you can use two universal solutions. Such methods, as a rule, do not require the intentional installation of auxiliary programs and can therefore be used regardless of the situation.

Method 1: Bots for Telegram

With the help of Telegram, you can significantly expand the standard capabilities of almost any social network, including Instagram, even for the purpose of using bold fonts. Especially for this, there are currently several bots, one of which will be considered by us as an example in the computer version of the messenger.

    1. Open the program in question and in the search field enter the name of the bot below. After that, you need to start it using the start button" in the chat window.textagrambot
    2. Complete a simple bot task that requires you to subscribe to another news channel. This will display an impressive list of available fonts and features at the bottom of the dialog.
    3. To get text in a specific font, select the appropriate one from the list of available options with one click. You can inform yourself about the successful completion of the procedure by message with a request to send the text.
    4. In the text field for creating new messages, enter the desired character set and send it. Immediately after that, the bot will send a counter message, which must be selected and copied by analogy with any other text.

To add text with the selected layout, open one of the Instagram versions and paste it into any suitable field. Usually the fonts work as intended, but at the same time it also happens that empty squares are displayed instead of the inscription, unfortunately without the ability to do anything.

Method 2: online services

If you do not want to install helper programs, you can always limit yourself to online services that provide font templates by analogy with the application discussed above and Telegram. In this case, there may be many more solutions than programs, but at the same time there is practically no difference between them.
