No clue how to do it with the GUI, and I'm assuming you use Windows.  
I know how to do this, using the CLI, but not the GUI. When typing  
out your command line, and specifying the SECOND part, just put a +  
in front of it. Like this:
mkvmerge --title "ROFL" --aspect-ratio 0:2.35 [etc.] -o complete.mkv  
part1.avi +part2.avi

It's all spelled out in the help documentation.
