We've made some updates to how paste formatting works in Markdown-enabled fields on GitHub. For example, in code editors and on gists, you'll now be able to paste URLs on selected texts that will render as Markdown links like
[...](https://...) by using the keyboard shortcut
cmd|ctrl + v.
The following paste formatting changes have been made to pull requests, issue comments and wikis:
- Spreadsheet cells and HTML tables will render as Markdown tables
- Any copied text containing links will render the links in Markdown
All of this formatting can be disabled when pasting using the keyboard shortcut:
cmd|ctl + shift + v or
cmd|ctl + shift + Alt + v.
