I have that installed, but I think you have "Tab Page Mode" mixed up with the 
"Tab Bar Extension" which are definitely not one in the same.

In the old ~/.kde/share/config/katerc there was the following option:


That's what set the mode instead of IDEAL mode. Restoring my old config file 
didn't work either.

If you look at the link I made you'll notice things like the built in 
terminal, find in files, and projects don't show up anywhere. Only the 
filesystembrowser and the documents are available since they're all I use. 
Under IDEAL mode there is no way I know of to stack two items at the same 
time on the same side (see screenshot) and COMPLETELY hide things that I'm 
never going to use.

So I guess it just goes back to my original questions... except I'd like to 
add one more.

Is there a list more specific to kate somewhere?
