Gnome appears to have removed the default application (per-filetype) selection from Nautilus’ ‘open with’ context menu and in settings > ‘default applications’ there’s no category for text editor. I currently prefer using a third-party editor and gedit is still opened seemingly at random, even for plaintext text files without a file extension on my system.
Sure, I could open everything from terminal, but I’m not ready to drop GUI yet. If I uninstalled gedit I may break my OS installation:
