Multiline in editor with separator as first position



I wanted to know if there is a setting in IntelliJ to have something like:

String myString = "blah"
     + "blah2"
     + "blah3";

Instead of the default:

String myString = "blah" +
     "blah2" +

I cannot seem to find any way to do that in the preferences of IntelliJ, but again, maybe I'm blind :-D

At the moment, I change by hand all the default formatting of IntelliJ... and I am becoming more and more annoyed by that.

It took me a while to get use to that way to format multiline, but it has so many advantages from my point of view, that I don't want to use the old format anymore. But apparently this support is not very "popular"...

I really hope that there is way to do it.

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards,
