Import markdown files for edition or auto formatting text pasted from an external markdown file

Import markdown files for edition or auto formatting text pasted from an external markdown file

Explorer | Level 3

It's great that the paper support markdown, but it's frustrating not being able to see or edit the code that allows the document to render nicely.

Today if I paste text from another markdown file, Paper doesn't format that text and I need to remove and re add symbols like # or *. Because of that, it would be a great feature for Paper to allow the auto formatting of pasted text, this alone would make me happy, but the full feature could be to allow the import of markdown files to be edited, not just saved as .md in Dropbox.

Thanks for your consideration.
Best regards
