How do I bold part of a word in a JIRA field?

I have a word, elephant, and I want to emphasise phant. I want it to look like:

elephant

But instead it looks like:

ele*phant*

If I add a whitespace character: ele *phant*, then it looks like:

ele phant

Any idea how to make this work without adding a whitespace character?

Hello Mards,

I use this workaround:

ele{color}*phant*{color}

Unfortunately, in the default JIRA wiki editor, I don't believe you can bold part of a word. If this is a critical feature for you, there are different editors available i nthe marketplace. 

Thanks, that is what I thought.

How can I mark this as answered? I can't seem to find the button in the new layout.

You can just highlight the word and do CTRL+B
