Hi @theara and welcome to the GitLab community forum!
While it’s easy to copy text from a README.md file, copying images or media contained in a markdown file is not possible through copying the markdown syntax. This is because the images appear only when the markdown is rendered.
To copy/paste from markdown (
.md) to a word doc, you should be able to do this copying the rendered output. You’ll need to highlight and copy the image being displayed and the text, but not the markdown syntax itself.
If this does not work, you may have to copy/paste or insert the images separately.
There are also a number of ways to directly convert a markdown file to a word doc.
One of my favorite methods for converting markdown into other formats is to use pandoc on the command line:
pandoc -o readme.docx -f markdown -t docx README.md
