Because I often include a Bookends reference link to my markdown files, I created a little Keyboard Maestro macro to help me with that.
After selecting a Bookends item this macro copies and merges both the formatted reference and its hyperlink to the clipboard and inserts angled brackets in both ends of the hyperlink. The text can then be pasted on the markdown file of your choice.
