Hi Stefan^2

Thanks for the explanation :)

So these two are complementary operations? From your explanation cut'n'glue makes sense, since this sounds like paper&scissors. Now if you translate cut'n'glue and split'n'glue into German. How does that sound to you as a native speaker?
My opinion:
- - Cut'n'glue: (Ausschneiden/Einkleben) sounds good, the names are complementary but it can be confused with cut'n'paste.
- - Split'n'glue: (Auftrennen/Einkleben) sounds good too, but the names of the actions are not complementary.

My suggestion:
- - Split'n'combine: (Auftrennen/Zusammenfügen) sounds good, actions are complementary and it cannot be confused with cut'n'paste
