All I wanted to do was combine two text strings, ABC and XYZ, into a single string ABCXYZ.  I wasted much time groping with actions that sound relevant, e.g. Join Text, Append Line, Replace Text, etc before discovering that Set Variable is the solution.

Most people probably would not assume that Set Variable can perform math and text concatenation. Set Variable implies assigning a value, not processing something.

This capability needs to be documented better or, better yet, provided as separate intuitively obvious actions, e.g. "Do Math" and "Combine Text"
