Atom Markdown-Preview auto copy HTML formatted markdown text to paste to onenote or blank email


#1

Hi,

I’m using atom and the markdown preview package to jot quick notes. In addition I’m planning to use autohotkey to streamline/automate my work to immediately take notes and to copy them to onenote or a blank email. I’ve previously used Resophnotes to do this and I have that working marvelously but I’m looking for a better markdown editor which atom seems to provide.

My main 2 independent questions are:

  • does anyone use markdown with atom and autohotkey?
  • OR how can I use the markdown-preview package in atom to automatically copy the HTML formatted text to my clipboard? This is to be able to copy it then to a blank email or note etc.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks! Happy holidays!

Miguel

There isn’t a method to make the Markdown Preview automatically copy the HTML to your clipboard but you can open the Command Palette and type mcopy to execute the “Markdown Preview: Copy HTML” command when you have the Markdown Preview focused.

True I know this but won’t that copy the actual HTML like the tags etc? Not the formatted text? I’m thinking I can just use shortcuts to navigate directly to the second pane and do a Ctrl + All to grab the text in HTML format and then do whatever I want with it after. No?
