Extract text layer from a pdf, clean it up with pandoc.
View gist:4263714

From Vim's command mode, if I enter this line I get just the text of the pdf, cleaned by pandoc, in a new un-named buffer

:read !pdf2txt <filename> | pandoc -t markdown

Trying to translate this to a line in .vimrc, instead I get a text version of the pdf's headers and metadata, with my new text appended into it.

au *.pdf read !pdf2txt % | pandoc -t markdown
