Structured Copy from Results #245
Since version 1.0.7, Postico copies tables in RTF format by default. So if you copy data from Postico, and paste it into Pages / TextEdit / Numbers, you'll get a nicely formatted table. I assume that Slack doesn't support rich text?
I can see a use case for copying in other formats, eg. "Copy as HTML" might also be useful. Since Markdown supports inline HTML, that should also work for Markdown. As far as I know, Markdown has no syntax for tables. Or does Slack have some extension for tabular data in Markdown?
Just tested in not slack, and you're right. It works nice there. Slack does not support RTF.
As for my original request.. from further poking I don't see a way to get Slack to display a table.
Thanks for the tip on RTF as I can paste that into Excel / Sheets (Google) and it will separate into cells and then I can share that. Not as quick but largely better than what I could easily do before.
I've added two new Copy Special commands: JSON and HTML table.
