I’m certain that most in this forum are already aware of this but in the off chance that some don’t, I’m sharing it.
Being a recent MD convert, I wanted to get a PDF of a Fortune article on Bill Gate’s Think Week into MD so I could quote from it more easily. I did a search for PDF to MD conversion and found a lot of online conversion tools. But, the better option for those who have DEVONthink is to use DT to convert from PDF to MD. This is a fantastic feature. Once converted, I sent the MD version to my research folder in Craft. The result looks like this in Craft:
It would be way easier to convert the HTML version of the article to markdown If you have access to that, I use Turndown Demo and it works great! (I linked the web version, but the JS library works great too!) I’ve actually got a Alfred workflow for this.
There are several plugins and services to convert sites to markdown. I’ve found that my favorite, however, unexpectedly, is the Safari extension that comes with the Quiver note taking app. I don’t use Quiver much anymore, but the Safari extension is fast and accurate. I just convert, then select all, copy and paste into the destination app.
