This extension worked exactly as advertised. I copied text from an email which included hyperlinks and pasted it into a Trello card where the links were preserved exactly as intended. Nicely done. Thank you.

Does what it says on the tin, does it well. Makes it easy to post the erotica I write to websites that only support markdown when pasting from rich text docs.

Great way to fill the gap when working with markdown inputs, thank you! Now I can copy anything into GitHub comments. I noticed a couple of little things that could be improved: - Multi-level lists seem to get flattened to a single level - A table wasn't converted to markdown. (but it remained as HTML which still displays fine in GitHub) The keyboard shortcut (Alt+C) is handy, but not advertised (please show it in the description above and in context menu if possible).

Hi, I love the idea, but unfortunately this doesn't work. I tried copying text which I had written in Google Docs into Reddit, and using the Paste as Markdown. The Google Docs text contained bold formatting. There was no markdown when I pasted it into Reddit.

Thanks for the review. Indeed Google Docs use CSS styles and those are not detected/analyzed by Turndown, the underlying engine of Markitdown, which is based on vanilla HTML. What Turndown detects by default is <b>this is bold</b> but not <span style="font-weight:bold">this appears bold</span>. This is fixed with version 5.7.2 onwards.
