Clipboard append with comma

Recommended Posts

I absolutely love the Fast Append feature of Clipboard. But 9 times out of 10 I am replacing the space it separates items with, with a comma. I see there exists the option to switch from space to newline. Would it be possible to add comma to that list?

 

Talking about in Preferences | Features | Clipboard | Merging. So would love to see the choices:

 

Separate appended item with space

Separate appended item with comma  <-- NEW

Separate appended item with new line

Don't separate appended items

Might make more sense to have:

Separate appended item with custom character
Separate appended item with new line
Don't separate appended items

I would like to add one more request here.  I like to have newlines between what I merge, but if there is already a newline at the end of what I copy, I would like to not end up with the extra blank line.  So, a "Separate appended item with new line if not present/not complete line" option is what I would like.

 

Thanks for considering.

My use case is I want to append English words I find on the Internet and their definitions to a .csv file.

 

In practice, it would mean:

- copying the word in the clipboard

- copying and merging it with its definition 

- append word and its definition to a .csv file

- import this file in quizlet (a flashcard application)

 

The problem I have is quizlet forces me to use commas as a delimiter so it recognize what is the word and what is the definition.

Plus, so many times words and definitions are made of more than one word.

 

So +1000 to @vitor answer.
