Re: Import and edit markdown file

Import and edit markdown file

Explorer | Level 4

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.

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?

 

This part of the question was not answered in the approved answer.

 

Best regards,

Indeed, it seems weird to allow export in markdown but not import from markdown. That would increase the usefulness of Paper enormously.
