  @gregormi @sars Is there a chance I could transfer the in-official maintainership of this plugin to you then?
  Truth is I have lost my heart with this plugin and do not care as much as would be good. D12131 <https://phabricator.kde.org/D12131> e.g. had me passive besides helping to fix the related crashes in kdevelop. Any time I look at this plugin I rather start to think about fixing kxmlgui, but never with the needed amount of resources, so resultless.

  The KParts plugin is chosen which is system/user globally selected as preferred one for embedded view. This selection though is only possible to edit with Plasma SystemSettings -> Applications -> File Associations -> text/markdown -> Embedded. The plan would have been to a) give a shortcut to open these settings from the plugin b) add a custom variant to the Kate Settings to allow overwriting those system/user global settings. But motivation to do that sadly also blocked by the shortcuts issue.
  Does changing the order in the settings work for you? If not, please tell, I would be still eager enough to fix that at least.
