Description

Tested on Sublime Text 2 and Sublime Text 3.

Clipboard functionality to copy a block of text from PDF and paste it with the new lines and hyphenated words stripped so that it is a clean paste of a block of text into the target area.

Given that we do a lot of work between PDFs and Markdown in drafting of documents, it seemed necessary to work on the paste functionality a bit.

Using

Base Paste PDF Text Block

The default keybinding is CTRL+ALT+V in Linux and Windows, CTRL+Super+V on OsX. To assign a new keybinding:

  • Open “…/Packages/User/Default.sublime-keymap”
  • The relevant command name is “paste_pdf”
{ "keys": ["ctrl+alt+v"], "command": "paste_pdf" }

The function will also correct French accents thanks to the kind help of Gery Casiez and Spanish accents thanks to Ome Gak.

Paste PDF Text Block with Pandoc Footnote

One thing I often do is paste a text block but then need to mark it for citation. There is a new command that will take care of that for you, called paste_pdf_pandoc. This command will preformat the text block using the clean_paste function, wrap the entire block in double quotes, add Pandoc's ^[] footnote formatting, and place the cursor so you can instantly put in the BibTex reference or citation holder. The default keybinding for this is CTRL+ALT+SHIFT+V in Linux & Windows, and CTRL+SHIFT+Super+v in OsX.
