org-mode a a lot and take notes in Org files. I like to sometimes highlight some important text. I colored bold to be red but it doesn't span multiple lines. And I couldn't get that to work using multiple stackexchange solutions. So I opted to mark the lines I want to boldify with asterisks. But that is taking time. How would I implement a function in Elisp that does that for me automatically.
Basically in this snippet of text:
This is a test to make sure I can highlight some text in org-mode And hopefully someone would be able to help me.
Now if I highlighted the region between   and then use the function, the text will change to:
This is a test to make sure I can *highlight some text in org-mode* *And hopefully someone would be able to help me.*
