Just figured this out with help from comments by roger64.
Copy your multiple instances of separator@dalcde to ~/.local/share/cinnamon/applets and rename them to separator2@dalcde, separator3@dalcde etc.
Then inside each one edit the metadata.json file as follows:
"description": "Creates a separator between applets",
make sure tour uuid and name field match and continue with any others in similar vein - you'll now see the multiple instances in cinnamon settings. Hope this helps.
I can't seem to figure out how to add multiple separators. I added multiple copies of the downloaded folder which did place multiple lines in Cinnamon settings, but I can only add one separator. If I click on the box and checkmark it, one separator appears. However when I click on the other separator entries nothing happens. When I go into Cinnamon settings again, all the separator entries are checked. Unchecking any one of them removes the only separator that can be placed. Cinnamon 1.6.3 on Ubuntu 12.10.
I am a separator maniac, lol. I installed this and immediately made 6 copies of it. I have to keep everything separated. So so simple, yet so necessary. Thanks! *****
Very handy. Thanks you very much.
As I needed three of them on my panel, I changed both names and uuid.
Ha, after reading the comments on my spaces I thought I do this too but you were faster. :D
I doubt it can cover the whole line without using a more complicated script. :( (I try that now. :p)
Would it be possible to somehow make the "|" bigger to cover the whole panel height?
