Whole text topic copied in a single paragraph

While copying a whole text (with many lines) in a note, it becomes many paragraphs as many lines in the original text. I would like better that the whole text becomes a single paragraph or an included text (like when you drag an drop a text file). The workaround is to delete newlines and add a which is somewhat annoying with many lines.

Thanks for improving agenda, Pascal.

Agenda sticks to the standard convention that a return/enter is a new paragraph, like Word, Pages, etc.

Unfortunately some note taking apps have no special paragraph spacing, so people have to type two returns to get some separation. For import, we try to identify this and remove the extra lines. I guess you are asking if we could do that with text pasting as well.

It’s a bit less clear there whether we should, but we will consider it. Thanks for the feedback!

Hell Drew,
I do a lot a copy / paste of texts from various sources to gather them in Agenda. For instance, when I’m pasting a text of several lines with CR in a checklist then I get as many bullets as lines instead of one bullet with the original text in a whole.
So manually I have to gather the lines in one bullet, it’s somewhat annoying.
My suggestion: as agenda support “Patch and Match Style”, then a text would be pasted as a whole only with this option.
Is it correct for you?
Best, Pascal.

You mean you have separate lines, but you want them all in one bullet? In Agenda, you would do that using line breaks. On macOS, hold CTRL when you type the enter.

If they are standard enters, we have to treat them as separate list issues. Not much we can do about that.

Note that using “Paste and match style” will paste in the text with no formatting. But if there is mark-down in there (eg dashes to start each line), it will be converted.
