Direct paste existing formatting of quotes (ie italics etc)

Is there a way you can paste text and have the existing formatting actually translate to markdown? I’m a postgrad student and playing with cross-referencing all my saved quotes, but finding it frustrating that I seemingly have to manually re-format italics etc after I paste.

Not a markdown whiz by any means so wouldn’t be surprised at all if there’s a straightforward way of doing this (like a keyboard shortcut or something) that most of you just know about. If there is could you let me know how please?

Things I have tried

ctrl V. Basically that’s it.

What I’m trying to do
