For some apps that don't support markdown syntax, how can you use Keyboard Maestro to change the text of a hyperlink before insertion?
This is an online tool for whiteboards called OrgPad, and B is the desired result.

The macOS clipboard often contains several different pasteboard items, each in a different format, for example:
The choice of what pasteboard types to put

OrgPad, for example, may look for
public.rtf (rich text) content first,
and then, if it fails to find any, fall back to any
What you need, in other words, is a
public.rtf version of the link in your clipboard.
You can get this by copying the URL and label with this Keyboard Maestro macro:
