Use case or problem
- Copy a selection of cells in Excel.
- Paste into Obsidian
- It is now formatted as a markdown table. Maybe even with column alignment markers.
Add a handler for table like data that converts the table into a (nicely formatted?) markdown table.
Right now it just pastes the text version.
This keeps the storage of obsidian pure markdown, and seems to be a nice place to add the interface.
Additional sources can be Open Office, .csv files, etc.
The reverse (copy md table to paste into excel) already works.
Maybe copy-paste into a finder or file manager pane could create a csv file there but I’ve not seen that before.
Current workaround (optional)
Paste, and add all the table stuff myself.
