Paste support for link #350
Is this feasible? I mean I could paste in a massive text block. Should Markpad try-parse everything to see if it's a link? Not to mention that the definition of what is a hyperlink is very complex and no complete regex exists (I think that it's even impossible to have one). So this will be full of heuristics, and thus half working, in turn resulting in constant complains from users about inconsistent behaviour.
All in all, don't think this feature can be created as is. Unless we define "link" the way MS Word does, as something that starts with "http://" and contains no whitespace (though this might still be expensive test if I paste a large body of text).
