Pasting Link on text doesn't convert to []() in live-preview

Steps to reproduce

In the legacy editor I can select a text and paste a link with CTRL+V and it converts it to [text](http://...)
With the live-preview editor in 0.13.13 it just pastes the link over the text.

Expected result

Actual result


  • Operating system: Win 10
  • Obsidian version: 0.13.13

Additional information

this never worked in the legacy editor without plugins.

sorry, my bad.
For reference, it’s a feature request for this plugin
