Need a better & faster way to paste meeting notes here

Is there a better and faster way to get team meeting notes in here? The teams I'm on use Google Docs for meeting agenda and notes. I literally have to reformat every single thing when I transfer those notes into this forum; it takes way too much time.

How is everybody else doing it? Please share a better way.

If there isn't a better way, can we get some sort of document extension or better cut & paste options added?

I feel your pain... I've had to reformat everything too.

Maybe paste into a plain text editor first? (reminds me of Word docs and Kupu ... ugh)

Hm, check this out: https://meta.discourse.org/t/google-docs-onebox-gem-requires-a-published-document/33649

Since discourse uses markdown: I used recently this script to get markdown out of a google doc

So what I am doing for the Board minutes is to put them into Plone first. Then I copy the HTML out of the visual editor and paste the code here since it takes HTML format. I'm not super happy with the formatting, but at least it's formatted.

The minutes you just pasted look good (only minor extra spacing issues I think) so that's a great method. I'm all for a method that doesn't require reformatting each line!!! (which is what I was doing when I shared board minutes here too)

just gave that a try with lastest plone.org team notes. cut my time in half, at least. Definitely an improvement, thank you!

Update on my process: I use Ulysses for writing, which exports in Markdown. Copied notes from Google Doc into Ulysses. Quickly formatted it and copied & pasted in the forum. Easy peasy. What a relief! Thanks for the ideas!
