Ubuntu Dash and Zim txt files


This request is specific to Ubuntu. I have no idea whether it is relevant to other operating systems.

The Ubuntu Dash allows the input of search terms to select a file. This can be used to identify a specific Zim page - quite a useful feature. However, as Zim pages are stored as *.txt files, the Dash opens them in the default text editor rather than Zim. This cancels out the usefulness :-).

Is it possible Zim could use a dedicated file type for it's pages and thus automatically load pages in Zim when they are run ?.

Or, is there any other way a Zim page can be recognised by the dash ?.
