Copy paste markdown text should do proper formatting
Although markdown works as you type things in by hand, it should also format text that is pasted into Teams.
We often have markdown docs or other existing assets that we're discussing, and being able to copy-paste markdown into Teams would help make that process a lot easier than retyping everything by hand!
we need to support the copy and paste of formatting
- from wiki to wiki
- from word to wiki
Agree with all the posts below, brought up short by this today. I use vscode for markdown and had existing documents that I needed to incorporate into a teams wiki in a different department.
It is very good idea.
Also Wiki is needed same copy&paste markdown formatting.

+1 I prefer to write my markdown ahead of time (either in VS Code or OneNote) and then paste in however that feature doesn't work as of today. Would love the ability to disable auto-formatting of markdown to rich text in the editor and only convert markdown once submitted. Allowing me to either edit markdown directly in the textarea in Teams OR write it up in any other tool (such as VS Code) and then paste in.
Until this is completed a workaround is pasting the text in a converter to "rich text" first and then copying the result into Teams. For example this one https://stackedit.io/editor

This is a huge roadbload for my team to switch to this for the same reasons mentioned above. Markdown is "good enough" today, but the lack of copy/paste of existing markdown and the lack of full markdown support syntax is a big problem for us.
