Nice work, Jonas! I've used it to generate attributes from file names. 
Everything worked as expected. It even handled the case nicely where there 
were more spaces in the file names than indicated by the chosen name 

Some feedback: I don't know what "Reset" is good for. But I would love the 
"Clear List" functionality on the top level, possibly replacing "Reset". 
And maybe give the mode popup the label "Mode". I can probably give you 
more feedback when I've used it more.

Best regards,
