The extension allows you to copy selected text on a page as Markdown with support for features including the following

  • Ability to copy links, images, and selected text as Markdown.
  • Linked images, will have options to individually select link or images.
  • Formatted text such as Italic, bold, strike-through, and inline code.
  • Unordered and ordered lists, with task lists support.
  • Tables, with respect to GFM.
  • Fenced code blocks, with language detection using info strings.

Note: When copying links and images, Chrome doesn’t let you extract images alt text or anchors text content to be used in Markdown, instead the links themselves are used as link title. Firefox doesn’t have this limitation though.

Exactly what I want it to do.

Excellent. Works very well. Successfully captures tables in Markdown. And pretty much anything else I’ve thrown at it. I’m using it for capturing snippets for pasting into Markdown based editors / tools (such as in Noteplan, Logseq, and Obsidian)
