One click annotation export

My current workflow is to annotate a paper, then export annotations to a knowledge management system (Obsidian) in which I am writing my proposal, manuscript etc… To do so, I typically have to go into the PDF (I rarely export on first read), click on export, click on markdown, and click copy.

It would be great if we had the option to export annotations for a reference in a default format (that can be assigned in settings) from a link in the main interface (upper right drop down arrow)
bringing this down to two clicks instead and removing the need to go into the PDF.
