It seems I need to be even more explicit - so here goes:

Start StrongED in the usual way. Next click Adjust on the iconbar icon
to open the modes menu. In the menu click on 'Draw' or 'DrawScript' to
create a new text in that mode.

In the new text click with Adjust on the 'tick' icon on the toolbar to
open the Mode Choices. Click 'Misc' in the left column, then set the
default filetype to '&b9b'. After that click on 'Save'.

All being well there should now be a new Choices file, filetyped 'Text'
in !StrED_cfg.UserPrefs.Modes.Draw (along with a new ColoursXXX file).
