Author Sort settings on different computer

I successfully moved my library to another computer. There is one setting which didn't transfer. I've searched the forum and user manual but my way of organizing is admittedly backwards so I'm not finding a way to do it. I like for Author and Author Sort to both be FN LN. (I can hear your teeth grating! Sorry!) I had somehow managed to get that done on the other computer, but can't find the preference/tweak/plug-in that I used so that the Author and Author Sort are both FN LN on this computer. Thanks for your help!

You really want "Alan Smith" to sort before "Jane Edwards"? That would drive me nuts!

Yes, sorry! *ducking* I knew better than to post this question the first time and somehow figured out a way to do it on my own when I originally set up the library.

Preferences: Tweaks: Author sort name algorithm

ID: author_sort_copy_method

The algorithm used to copy author to author_sort
Possible values are:
invert: use "fn ln" -> "ln, fn"
copy : copy author to author_sort without modification
comma : use 'copy' if there is a ',' in the name, otherwise use 'invert'
nocomma : "fn ln" -> "ln fn" (without the comma)'
