When merging clips a pop-up window is presented showing the merged clips.
Very nice indeed. One can decide for reverse order, or not.

By default a separator is added.

The separator as such is okay, but maybe it would be an idea to add an option to disable the use of the separator?
Additionally, if the separator is disabled, maybe add another option like 'add linebreaks' , so there is space between the clips, or, alternatively, the clips are 'glued' together.

a) With separator:
1) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.

2) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.
----------
3) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.


b) Without separator, but with linebreaks/space between clips

1) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.
 
2) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.

3) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.


c)  Without separator, no linebreaks/space between clips

1) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.
2) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.
3) This is a sample text. Lorem Ipsum. 1234567890.

What if i just made the "Separator String" edit box a combo box where you could type in something custom (and it would be remembered), or you could select from some presets like ("\n" or ",")?

I guess that would also be an option.

Was looking more into a minimum of keyboard input, i.e. just tag-tag + okay.

Keyboard input might be necessary in some cases e.g. when users prefers a different separator, like:
\n====\n  or \n****\n  or \n*\n

Anyway, of course that is upto you.

I think a dropdown, like:
standard  (which is preconfigured, i.e. the \n-------\n,)
none        (nothing, glued situation)
linebreak (\n)
custom. . .

most likely is much too complicated programming-wise.

Again, it is a suggestion, leave it to you to accept or not and how... :)

I like the idea of having presets as long as one of the presets is "no separator". The simplest solution that works is best.
