gvim is the editor I want.  "gedit" is what I'm getting.

Changing the pref to


(after closing zim) has no effect.  From the command line, using xdg-open
on a .txt file does launch gvim, so the mime setting should be good.

Setting the pref to the full path of vim also does not solve it.

Other ideas?
