2.0.X | Text Formatting


FancyMenu allows you to change the text formatting of all elements allowing for text input (like normal texts, web texts and button labels).
You can change the text color, make it bold, underlined and more.

It also allows you to change the text scale (size) of most of the text-based elements.

How to Format a Text

FancyMenu uses Minecraft's built-in text formatting system.
This system works with simple formatting codes like &6 or &l.

These formatting codes can be inserted in texts to change everything after the formatting code to the specific formatting.

A list of all formatting codes along with a detailed description of how to use these codes can be found in the official Minecraft wiki.

NOTE: The Minecraft wiki will use § as formatting code prefix, but FancyMenu needs the alternative code format, so please use & instead of § in FancyMenu!

For example, &cThis is a §ecolored text. will show This is a as red text and colored text. as yellow text, because &c, the formatting code for red, is written before This is a, so everything after this formatting code will be red, until another formatting code is used. In this case, red is replaced with yellow after using &e, the formatting code for yellow.

How to Change the Text Scale

Not all, but most of the text-based elements allow you to set it's text scale.

If the element has this setting, you can find it by rightclicking the element and searching for something like a Scale or Text Scale option in the context menu.

The default Minecraft text scale is 1.0, that's the scale of nearly all default texts in Minecraft.
A scale of 2.0 will double the text size and a scale of 0.5 will half it.
