Thought you could have tabs both multi-row and alpha sorted

My computer had a power-down hissy-fit, and I've lost some of my IDEA setttings. (Before you ask, yes I wish my backups weren't broken at the moment, and I'm working on it...)

I'm pretty much certain I used to have tabs shown in multiple rows, and also in alpha order, but that doesn't seem to be an option. Searching the docs actually says that the way to enable aplha sorting is to show tabs in a single row.

Am I completely hallucinating here? Is there a hidden setting that does that? Is a plugin required?

Thanks for your reply.

I voted that issue up, and replied there. Won't repeat myself here, but the short version is that I'm quite sure I was already set up with multi-row tabs in alpha order, so there has to be some way to do it in IDEA 14.1.

Preferences -> Editor -> General -> Editor Tabs -> Tab Appearance -> Show tabs in single row (uncheck). 

You're welcome.
