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.

Hello Geany users,
I have just installed Geany on Ubuntu and when I open the preferences I
have tab General, Interface, ..., Various but after Various* I do not have
the Terminal tab (see image below)*, which is what I wanted to access to
paste and copy commands to the terminal to execute small pieces of code.
Have I made a mistake in installing geany (i used on the command line: sudo
apt-get install geany)
Thank you very much for help.

I made new plugin that includes almost all possible features concerned
with brackets and quotes auto-closing. I just finished it and maybe you
want to test it. If it is useful and good enoough I will make pull
Previously I made a patch for geany, but decided to put all code
together inside one small plugin.
Here is it:

Due to a hard disc failure there will be a downtime for the mailing
list as well as the webserver at *.geany.org at about 12pm UTC -- noon,
just to be sure ;) -- at Friday, May 31th.
We hope to get the services back as soon as possible. Please don't
We are happy to announce a new minor release of Geany!
This version fixes two specific but important issues of the 1.23 release:
* Fix custom styles under KDE and for people using gtk-chtheme
(corrects tab coloring, #3607935).
* Fix broken opening files from command line on Windows (#3613096).
As usual, all downloads can be found on http://download.geany.org/.
Any developers on here? I'd like to ask for a micro-enhancement.
I have geany open all the time (v1.22) and use the "reflow lines/block" (Ctrl+J)
command often to wrap very long strings I've pasted in.
It works. However when it does, it scrolls the viewport over to where the end
of the line was. This makes the document now invisible. I have to then grab
the mouse and move the scroll bar over. Could be done hitting the home key too
I suppose but I usually forget.
So the question is, could Ctrl+J Reflow scroll back to the first column when it

TKProE is an ide for TK. The creator said with an editor like notepad,
you can save and close the editor file and it will update the proc
window in TKProE. Is there a trick to that someone here may know of? I
asked the question here because I'd like to use Geany for this. Right
now, I edit my changes and save them in Geany. Then I shut down TKProE
and start it up again and load my project to see the updated changes.
From the user docs of TKProE...
This option specifies the external editor that should be used for
editing the application procedures.
This editor is run by pressing the Edit button on the
TKproE procedures dialog
. The currently
selected procedure will be opened using the external editor. The TKproE
application itself will wait
until the external editor program is closed before TKproE will respond
to any more user input. When
the editor is closed, TKproE will update the source code associated with
the currently selected
Remember to save the file before exiting the external editor. You should
also remember to press the
button in TKproE in order to save the modified procedure within TKproE.
External editors (e.g., Windows Write) that create a copy of themselves
and then immediately return
to the calling application will not work with this feature. (On the
Windows operating system, the
Notepad program will work properly.)
Any necessary command line options should be included when setting the
value of this option. The
name of the temporary file containing the procedure being edited will be
substituted anywhere the
word FILENAME is found in the option value."
I will check tomorrow for any replies. I need to go to bed now and get some
sleep so I can go to work. I asked in one other forum but it is a
and not an editor guru forum. I will go mark that closed so there is
question at one forum.
thanks so much,
