Add link creation via Markdown Syntax

Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.

Writing text, highlighting it and selecting the “Link” button with the mouse/touchpad is just cumbersome. It would be nice if we had a way of doing all of this with the keyboard.

Describe the solution you’d like

I would like to have the official markdown solution for the creation of links.

Just use [this is the text i want to see](https://here_comes_the_actual_link) to get this this is the text i want to see

Describe alternatives you’ve considered

The alternative is the only possible way to enter such links right now in anytype and it shouldn’t be the only one

Yes, about [Text](link) syntax on the block would be a cool addition to current state, useful when you are typing out stuff superfast.

But, regarding the current features available, you can actually do it ALL with the KEYBOARD you don’t have to use mouse… rather than copying the link on the go.

  • Copy the link from the website.
  • Go to Anytpe and write some text.
  • Use Ctrl + Shift + Left Arrow key to highlight the current word.
  • Use Ctrl + K to open link embedding menu.
  • Paste the link, and then press Enter/Return
  • Done!! There’s a Hyperlink in your block.

Ah i wasn’t aware of Ctrl + K :sweat_smile: That will do for now, but the request is still valid :smiley:
