Setting default UID

I recently added a new UID to my public key but now GPG wants it to be
the default for everything.  I want one of my existing UIDs to be the
default, but I cannot find any documentation ANYWHERE on how to find
this.  With gpg --edit, gpg seems to put a dot next to the default
uid, but there is not even any mention of this in the manual.  Ideas?
