Dropbox paper not exporting the code block for markdown

Dropbox paper not exporting the code block for markdown

I tried exporting my Dropbox paper documents as markdown files and it feels awesome. The only glitch that I see is that all the code blocks in the exported markdown file do not have the ``` surrounding them. I don't know if this is a bug or just something that markdown export is currently not supporting.

Thanks @Xiangliang, for the screenshot and sorry to jump in here.

 

The triple backtick (aka fenced code-blocks) isn't a standard markdown extension. 

 

Paper isn't a markdown editor per se, and at this time, exporting a Paper doc converts fenced code blocks to four-space.

 

I hope this helps.

Hi @Xiangliang, thanks for bringing this to our attention.

 

Could you attach a screenshot showing the export you're getting, while hiding an sensitive information?

 

This will help me to assist further!
