I am trying to open a '.txt' file in Krusader. I want it to be opened by the Ubuntu 17.10 editor 'Text', but when I press 'Return', the file is opened by LibreOffice 5 - very strange...

I have tried looking at Ubuntu Settings -> Details -> Default Applications, but there are only 6 'types', text not being one of them. When I hit 'Return' in the File Manager 'Files' (Nautilus) the file is opened correctly by 'Text'. So what is going on here? :-)
