I have been wanting to use Markdown more in DT3 so I have gone through the page in the help document titled “Markdown Documents”. That page discusses how to create Markdown formatted links by dragging items into the Markdown document.
This is not working for me and I have been playing around with it trying the different methods described in the help page.
I started with drag/drop and what I found is that nothing I tried to drag into the document created a link. The only exception was an image which created a wikilink not a Markdown formatted link. dragging in any kind of text file (plain text, rtf, pdf+Text, md, html, webarchive) all just pastes in the text contents of the doc, not a link.
If I press Control after starting the drag operation it does create a link but it is a wikilink style, not Markdown.
However, the help doc say I can Control-click in the md doc and choose “Insert Link To” and that does create a Markdown formatted link but it creates a link with an x-devonthink-item link, not something like
![link](item.png) which I guess is understandable, but not good for exporting to a website.
By the way, I’m using beta3 and I have enabled automatic WikiLinks > Names & Aliases in preferences. Also all of the documents I am trying to link to are in the same group as the Markdown document.
