Thanks for the catch - will add that tweak to the export code.

Memo to self: add markdown also as "Copy As" format in context menu.

Afraid there are at least two issues preventing me from including it in the
next release:

1) How to deal with checkbox lists ? Current I leave them in the same
syntax as zim (using "[ ]", "[*]" and "[x]") but this will not
translate well in pandoc's interpretation

2) How should we link to other files when exporting a notebook ? I can
link the file as "file:///path/to/file.txt" or as "./file.txt"

Maybe someone on the list has a suggestion ?
