Paste URL to highlighted text to make a link

Can we please make it so when you highlight text and paste a link, that it turns that text into a link with the URL you just pasted? Like is done in Dropbox Paper and Slack? It feels like magic every time :slight_smile:

Cmd-k is at odds with few other apps and muscle memory is beating my simple brain.


Hi Welcome,

I was not aware of this but sounds indeed very handy! Iโ€™ll add this to our To-Do list

Thanks and Regards.

This is also the behaviour of the GitHub markdown editor and this Discourse markdown editor when pasting a link over selected text.
