Bug ID: 370997
           Summary: Include text files in the "Documents" category (e.g.
                    for Dolphin-"Find" or for Krunner or for
           Product: BalooWidgets
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Archlinux Packages
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general

Currently the "Documents" category does not include text files, I use many
plain-text files and suggest that they should be considered a Document.

In 2014 this bug was supposedly (?) been fixed, see 
I am filing it again because the old one's location is now obsolete (there is
no "baloo" product anymore), but also because there has been no reaction to
existing reports of it not being fixed on forum.kde:

Perhaps this results from 
if (mimeType.contains(QLatin1String("text")))
        types << Type::Text;
in line 141-142 of

It would be even better, if the user could whitelist what should be defined as
document (other users would choose even .tex or .html or whatever files). It
would be best if one could adjust this in settings->Plasma Search->Document.

baloo 5.27.0-1 baloo-widgets 16.08.2-1 plasma 5.8.1 

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create text/plain file, which is used as a document
2. let baloo update index
3. baloosearch or "Dolphin->Find->Any" finds it
4. "Dophin->Find->Documents" or Krunner or Launcher or Dashboard doesn't find
it (as it isn't in the "Document" category)

Expected Results:  
Should find a text/plain file, which is used as a document. Or offer an option
which filetypes are interpreted as documents.
