    I have google drive installed on my Android Galaxy 6e and Windows 10 laptop.

    I have a favorite text editor (jota) installed on my Galaxy 6e.

    How can I configure the Galaxy 6e, so that whenever I open a .txt file in my google drive, it opens with my favorite text editor (jota).

    Note: I've tried setting default text editor on android to jota, but when I open a .txt file on google drive, it still opens with the default editor for google drive.
    I can subsequently open it with jota (using "open with"), however I get a warning that I can't save any changes because the file is already open by the content provider.

    Seems like there must be a way to set things up so that, on my Galaxy 6e, whenever a .txt file on Google Drive is opened, it opens with a particular text editor, in editable mode.

    Thank you very much.
