Text selected inside the main input text field can be formatted using the following keyboard shortcuts:
|Bold||Command B (⌘B)|
|Italics||Command Option I (⌥⌘I)|
|Underline||Command Option U (⌥⌘U)|
|Foreground Color||Command Option C (⌥⌘C)|
|Background Color||Command Option H (⌥⌘H)|
These controls can also be accessed by control clicking (right clicking) the main input text field.
The following is the list of the control characters used for formatting.
^Bold Text^whereas ^ represents the control character.
Foreground color and background color are grouped together using the control character U+0003 ("0x03")

The colors are:
Foreground color and background color are defined using the following format:
The first number is the foreground color. Foreground color is required.
The second number is the background color. Background color is optional.

^14Colored Text^ — Grey colored text. ^14,13Colored Text^ — Grey colored text with a pink background. ^00,01Colored Text^ — White colored text with a black background.
Normally, a block of formatted text should be terminated with the control characters that were used to open it. However, if you did not create a block of text, then which control characters are present is not easily known. If that's the case, then you can insert the control character U+000F ("0x0F") to terminate all formatting at a specific location.
