Is there another way to rename or delete projects than by editing
geany.conf (the last section) and deleting or renaming files in
~/projects ? It looks like I am overlooking something.

I wonder if there is any way to group functions, and if there isn't, could
this feature be added.
For example, by using a special key after a comment and then the group
In bash, If the special key is %, it would look like this:
#% Group Title
Then all functions after that get grouped inside "Group Title"
This could be enabled when sorting by appearance. Also it would be cool if
the sorting is remembered.
I have a lot of functions and with this it would be much easier to find
When working with R files, in order to use "Send selection to
terminal" one would want to append a newline to the selection. While
this can often be done manually in the written code, it can get
awkward to do so when in need to execute only one line from the middle
of a paragraph.
Could anyone suggest a way to tweak Geany to send to the terminal the
selected code with an empty line appended? Thank you
Here are 3 points to improve (imo) the search & replace tool in geany.
-1- whole words
The current "match whole word only" setting fails if the searched expression is not a word at all. What I would expect is that it requires whole word(s) only for the part(s) of the expression that are words -- according to the definition of word characters in the filetype config.
Meaning that looking for "+" would not fail only because "match whole word only" is checked, because this setting is irrelevant for this expression. Searching for " = name" could succeed with this option set as expected, but fail on " = names". Am I clear?
The current behaviour leads to constantly uncheck this option when irrelevant, which may be dangerous for next search & replace, each time we forget to set it back.
-2- record settings
The common settings we use (for me: escape sequence, case sensitive, whole word only, not close dialog) are not recorded between sessions and cannot be set in preferences. As a consequence, we need to redefine the dialog for each working session -- and again some missing or error may be dangerous. Would it be possibly to add these settings to the "search" frame in preferences?
-3- comments & strings
A very common task when improving, extending or refactoring code is renaming -- if only for clarity. Too often we'll have to search & replace words that are "key words" for the application, so that they may happen in comments and even in strings. Depending on the case we want the replacement to extend comments and string -- or not at all!
Unnoticed and unintended replacements commonly lead to funny but meaningless comments or unpredictable issues because of string changes. A pair of settings to address this point would be great.
