Import and edit markdown file

Hi

Great idea to support markdown in Dropbox Paper ?

- But when I put in my local dropbox folder a file.md, I can't edit it in Paper. I just can view it. 

- Another problem, in my file.md il have images links like that :

![C. Schubbel - Fotolia.com.](toto.png "Cigogne")

The image toto.png is in the same dropbox folder as the file.md , but the image is not display on the viewer paper  ?

It would a real shame

Best regards

Actually, it would be ?raw=1, not ?dl=1.

I can't speak to the rest, but this item usually will not work. You generally cannot reference another file like that within Dropbox. You would need to create a share link to the specific file and reference it using that.

Re: Import and edit markdown file

Hi, 

I don't understand how I can create a MarkDown file on my computer and then upload it to Dropbox Paper for further edits. 
Is this at all possible?
