When you set the split points, click on Confirm and your segment will be split in as many sub-segments as you desire.

If you wish to merge back the sub-segments, click on the icon to the right of the split segments (or use the shortcut CTRL+W) and click on the red cross which will be displayed hovering your cursor over the split points.
