Missing "Abbreviate Qualified Package Names" option in the Favorites window

I like the Abbreviate QPN feature and use it with the Project tool window. I would like to use the same in the Favorites window, but cannot see this option when clicking the gear icon on the window's toolbar. This is in IntelliJ IDEA 12.0.4. As far as I know, this option was available earlier in Favorites too.
Is there a reason why it got removed, or is it just a bug?


Thank you for your feedback, the problem was resolved as https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-101809 for version 12.1 (and upcoming 12.1 EAP of course)


Wow, that was quick! Many thanks! :)



I see it, but it's disabled. :(

Am I missing something or is this a bug? Thx


This setting is disabled because in scopes (like 'Default' or 'Drane' in your screenshot) there are folders, not packages. So, this settings is not applicable here, it's by design (for a while).
