Changing the default datatype (via the dialog Tools -> Options ->
Editors) seems to have no lasting effect (beyond the current session).
(Note that the config file mysqlx_common_options.xml seems to have no entry
for this particular option. So it is hard to say how the change of datatype could survive a restart of QueryBrowser.)

How to repeat:
Open dialog Tools -> Options -> Editors. Change default data type to integer. Apply. Close dialog.
Open dialog Tools -> Options -> Editors again. I expect the default data type to be integer, and so it is -- everyone happy.
Now close QueryBrowser. restart. Open dialog Tools -> Options -> Editors. I expect the default data type still to be integer, but now it is varchar(45) (as it seems, some built-in default).
