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 am new to Geany and i am learning how to use its features according to
its manual. I got a bit stuck right here
While i am trying to add a new custom command through Edit->Send
Selection to->Set Custom Commands menu, when i "OK", the command doesn't
show up. It's as it never gets saved or sth. What am i doing wrong? +
Some examples on where this feature should be used would be much

Do you roughly how long it takes for the Ubuntu packages to appear?
I've tried compiling from the source but I get a couple of problems
with pkg-config which are beyond my knowledge to solve.
I am trying to add a snippet for %cursor% in the [Defaults] snippet area.
This does not work as the %cursor% is transformed to the cursor
location when hitting tab. I am looking for an escape sequence,
such that a literal %cursor% is left after transforming. Those two
examples don't work, but perhaps there is a way?

Thank you very much Lex. Apologies for having wasted your time in
directing me to something that is there clear as a bell in Geany's
preferences. I thought it was system-wide so was looking
(unsuccessfully) in KDE's keyboard shortcuts.
I tried to add keys to the empty list "expand". However, this did not
produce any highlighting effect for the keys. The styles I tried changing
were "wordexpand" and "expand", but neither produced the desired effect,
which is to have the keys under the "expand" list highlighted in a
The aim of this exercise is to expand highlighting support for OpenSEES,
which uses tcl as a front-end scripting language to generate and analyze
structural models. I would like to add the OpenSEES specific commands under
the "expand" list to highlight them in a different style from normal tcl/tk
I have tried the exercise using two methods: first define a custom
filetypes.OpenSEES.conf, and second using a user-copy of filetypes.tcl. Does
not work using either approach.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Hello Geany people
Is there a way of writing a snippet which would take the cursor to that
part of the line which is at the RH window edge? I.e., to modify the
behaviour of the "End" key to make it go to the RH window edge rather
than the end of the line?
I notice that this was raised on the list in January 2009
In this thread, Heiko Studt commented on the apparent impossibility of
swapping the "End" and "Alt+End" keybindings.
Is this still the case? Alt+End is possibly one of the most difficult
key combinations to press without taking one's eyes off the screen. I
would very much rather use a simple "End".
Thank you an excellent editor, btw. I have been using EditPlus under
Wine for a few years and didn't think I'd find anything better.
