Copy as rich text ignores links and retains delimiters and colors

When I copy as rich text, the output does format things like bold and italics correctly but it keeps the markdown delimiters around the text as well. Additionally, links are not converted to rich text. The pasted text also retains the syntax highlight colors from the MMDC window. I'm running 4.3.3.

    Copy as rich text copies the syntax highlighted text from the editor --
    some people really like that feature, though I have never needed it
    myself. So it is working correctly.

    If you want to use the processed text, you can copy from the preview
    instead of the editor.
