Having the markdown style formatting ... nice feature. What I'd also find really handy is if there was a quick way to paste in a block of text (that needs to remain as-is).
... a few too many key strokes, which i occasionally mess up :)
Paste alone doesn't work (currently), because if the pasted block of text happens to have "_", for example, it gets treated as an markdown directive for italics (hope I'm remember that correctly), and the "_" itself is removed.
Maybe the easiest "fix" is to just assume that anything that you paste ... treat as plain text (don't process markdown characters)?
Or I suppose, as another idea suggested ... rich text editor, if it would allow: click to edit ... paste ... save. At least that would be fewer key strokes (and immune to missing a ` or a shift ... in the current incantation).
