I copy a bunch of text to the clipboard that I want to paste into Obsidian as a blockquote.
What I intuitively do is type a single
> at the beginning of the line to enter block quote mode, then I hit ⌘V to paste. This works if my selection is a single paragraph. But for multiple paragraphs, the first paragraph break in the pasted text exits the block quote.
It would be nice of Obsidian to recognize my intent and paste all the text as blockquote. I don’t think the intention is ambiguous, because “pasting the first paragraph into the blockquote then pasting the remaining paragraphs as plain text” is not a very sensible use case.
After pasting the block, select all pasted text inside Obsidian and use a command or shortcut to Toggle blockquote. Or write a Paste as blockquote plugin (maybe someone already has). Both of which are less intuitive and slower.
