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.

  1. Copy the link into the clipboard
  2. Select the target text
  3. 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.
