The string visualizer should be used in this case.
Comment 1 Jeffrey Stedfast 2013-08-22 09:22:34 UTC
Right now, Visualizers get sorted based on their Name property.

We need to figure out a better way of sorting them.
Comment 2 Lluis Sanchez 2013-08-22 10:16:24 UTC
Or maybe a way of specifying the default visualizer.
Comment 3 Lluis Sanchez 2013-08-22 11:32:10 UTC
Fixed in master.

I have checked this issue with following builds:

All Mac
X.S 4.2.3(build 127)

I am seeing Text visualizer by default. This is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/YbKJ9c0M8l6
