Manifest.json doesn't open in Descriptor Editor

Do you have any idea why manifest.json file always opens in Code Editor instead of Descriptor Editor? I'mm using Personal WebIDE. When I started IDE for the very first time it worked well, today it always opens in Code mode (JSON).

Thank you!

The default editors are only set for the below content types.

As tested in my WebIDE For Manifest.json what ever editor you would select when opening a file, the same setting would be applied next time when opening a different Manifest.JSON...

Try this - Open Manifest.JSON click on Descriptor Editor close the file and WebIDE and launch it again. This time it should open in Descriptor Editor. At least that's how it works in my case :-)
