I've been happily using Geany for a little while now, coding mostly in
Python. I have a couple questions:
1. For a dark color scheme, eg Vibrant Ink, how do i get the active
line to not be highlighted. White text + white highlighting =
invisible text on the line I'm trying to edit. Arrgh!
2. Any debugger advice for python? I am finding winpdb is pretty slow
and actually crashes on my machine a fair amount.
I'm on a windows 7 64 bit installation.

Either I didn't get how to do it or this is a subtle bug:
I'm on Linux, when I copy something from the editing window with the
mouse and I paste in the terminal pane inside geany with the central
mouse button, the terminal pane doesn't get the focus, pressing enter
makes the copied line(s) disappear in the editing window and doesn't
issue an enter in the terminal (this is the expected behaviour).
Should I file a ticket?
The default syntax highlighting orange color for strings IMO looks bad.
I wish you would change that default for many languages.
Couldn't you just throw people who like windows editors a bone and have
a GUI for syntax highlighting instead of editing a file?

Just wanted to let any Geany-Themes users know there's been two recent
minor releases (I didn't ANNounce the last one). Other than a few
fixups, the main thing is the new color schemes, which were kindly
provided by members of the community.
The new color schemes since the last ANNounce (1.22) are:
Ralesk's MC (mc.conf) - Henrik Pauli
This is an old-school looking scheme inspired by the appearances of the
Midnight Commander program.
Monokai (monokai.conf) - Thanh Tran
This is a port of super colourful and widely popular TextMate theme of
the same name.
Pygments - Nicolas Holvoët
This is a port of the default color scheme used by the awesome Pygments
You can get the latest release from the Downloads page on Github or
just grab the stuff from Git there. I didn't backport anything for old
Geany versions (pre-1.22), sorry.
Thanks to everyone who helped with the fixups and new themes!
P.S. If you notice any problems with anything, as always, feel free to
make an "Issue" on Github or just email me directly.
I'm trying to create my own conf files for TeX and noweb, so I try to
create config files in a "step by step" fashion.
1) I've copied usr/share/geany/filetypes.
latex as ~/home/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.tex.conf
2) i've commented out in the file filetype.extensions,.conf the line
and I've adde the line
3) I've added in the file ~/home/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.tex.conf
in the [settings] section
but at this point the ~/home/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.tex.conf is
not read. If I open a .tex file I found a menu option <document - set
filetype - tex file> but hitting that menu option the document loses his
Were is my fault?
