At the moment one can write in Anytype format and then export if one wants MD as output, but this is little intuitive and immediate.
I would like to be able to copy the text I created and paste it in MD in other applications.
I would propose toggle to (temporary) convert a block to markdown to be able to copy it.
Hey @Earendil, thanks for your suggestion!
Just to check: you want to write text in markdown format in Anytype, and then copy-paste it elsewhere in Anytype, or elsewhere in another application?
For the first case, I think all formatting is kept during a copy-paste operation. If that is not the case, please add a bug report for that
For the second case, I think a toggle to (temporary) convert a block to markdown (or show as unformatted/plaintext) would be great to allow to copy your text as markdown and paste it elsewhere. I don’t see any other feature requests for such a feature specifically.
Can you specify whether either of these two cases match what you mean?
Thank you Sam, what I would like to do is to write text in Anytype, and then copy and paste it elsewhere in another application while keeping the markdown formatting. So I suppose that I can make a feature request for a “toggle to (temporary) convert a block to markdown”, as you propose. Would that be the way to go about this issue?
@Earendil thanks for the clarification
My suggestion was not more than, well, just a suggestion, so please share if you have any other ideas about how you’d like to see your need met! I’m equally happy if you create a feature request with my suggestion.
Thank you @sambouwer, I will go ahead and make the feature request. Had I better change my initial post or make a new one? What is the best practice?
Both are fine we can close this topic if you want to make a new one, but adjusting this one is also fine
I’ll adjust this one then!
