Formatting text in Zephyr test step?

We are currently using a trial version of the Zephyr Jira plugin,

We are creating test steps etc, Is there anyway we can add some formatting to each of the test step, Test Data, Expected Results sections.

eg Bold, change text colour, italics etc.

We have tried the usual JIRA formatting commands

Thanks for your help

is a duplicate of the above question.

They're taking it as a feature request.

Is there an update on this?

I've tried to use wiki text in a test step but it does not fully work.

Using '#' or '*' for lists works fine.  However, using '##' or '#*' to indent the list does not.

It does work in the description boxes elsewhere on the page.
