Merging multiple blocks into one block (with new lines instead of bullet points)

Often I need to combine blocks into one, especially when working with long form texts, and is quite some work to turn the block bullet into a ctrl-enter new line.
There is a plugin ‘split block’ but not yet ‘merge blocks’.

+1, this is a big pain right now as I have to go to the end of a paragraph, then shift-backspace, shift-enter, then carefully find the end of the next paragraph (which is hard with current shortcuts not working quite right for doing that; eg cmd-down doesn’t do this like it normally does in a text input on macOS)
