Dolphin: How to make Style per Folder

So, I use KDE. And ofc Dolphin. My normal sort of files is alphabetical per file name, in compact view. For certain folders/mounts/whatever I want it to behave different. For example the Download folder should be sorted after the last change date, so newest files on top. If I choose “Remember Style for each folder” I get the following result (in the background):

Instead of this (achieved via setting “Use common display style for all folders” and then set to sort by foldername via clicking on the top bar:

Problem must be somewhere between chair and keyboard, what gives? Help please o allmighty EOS forum. I want “Remember per folder”, but with the lower view…
