Insert a link into a Markdown editor quickly
In order to insert a link into a Markdown editor, we often put the link right after the target text to follow the standard Markdown format:
... [target text](link goes here) ...
The link then is attached to the target text. However, there is a quick way to do that.
- Copy the link into the clipboard
- Select the target text
- Then press command + V (on macOS) or Ctrl + V (on other operating systems) to paste the link
I see these steps work for the most popular Markdown editors such as GitHub, Slack, etc.
