Geany seems to be the almost perfect text editor even for a non coder.
It is fast and well organized. Markdown + GeanyPrj + Numbered Bookmarks
and everything runs smooth.
Is there a way to center text on screen? It will still be left aligned,
but the column of text would be something like 60% and centered on
screen or in the window.
Something like this:
Also, is there a way to make the full screen a true full screen and make
everything disappear, including the menu bar?
I'm using Geany since quite sometime, both on Windows and on Linux
I appreciate it because it's fast and I can use it remotely (export the
display from a Linux box through SSH)
However, this morning, I face a strange and annoying problem and I don't
know how to solve it.
I'm coding in TCL
In my code, I used the following line :
set n $showArray($i,"neighbor")
it looks like the first double-quote (") isn't seen by geany ! And then
after this line all the rest of my code seems to be part of a string, which
The code work in TCL !
If I put a space after the comma, then the double-quote is taken into
account and the highlighting of the code is ok ... but it doesn't work
anymore in TCL
Please note :
I have the issue on Linux and Windows 7
Under Windows, I'm using the latest version 1.30.1
I have the same issue with Notepad++ , and MyTcl (a specialised TCL editor)
but it's ok with Ased3.0 or Komodo Edit
Can I do something to correct this ?
Thanks in advance for your help
As a long time Visual Studio C++ developer, I made heavy use of the
CString class. I am now learning to use Geany on Windows as a
development platform with the intent of then moving the source code to a
Raspberry Pi 3 and re-compiling it there under the RPi version of Geany.
So, is there a CString class available for Geany?
I've run into another segmentation fault again.
Here's my backtrace and gdb output:

My project's primarily a Python project, and if I'm reading the backtrace
properly, it's involving Python. I don't remember enabling any
Python-specific Geany plugins, so I'm not sure why it's running Python, but
even so, why is Python causing Geany to crash upon startup? I have many
other Geany Python projects that open without issue.
My Geany version is:
geany 1.30.1 (built on 2017-03-21 with GTK 2.24.30, GLib 2.48.2)
Every time I try and launch a new instance of Geany, it immediately returns
a segmentation fault.
$ geany -i
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
I've tried with and without a *.geany file, and the result is the same. How
do I diagnose this?
I'd like to change the main menu font size on Geany. Long story but I have two
monitors with different DPIs and need the menus and notebook tabs to be smaller
on the larger monitor, because they're huge.
Using these instructions:
I put this in my ~/.gtkrc-2.0 and in the same file in my current theme, but it
widget "GeanyToolbarMenu" style "geanyStyle"
widget "GeanyMenubar" style "geanyStyle2"
Not sure why it doesn't work. :/
I have the GeanyVC plugin enabled and the "use external diff viewer" option
checked, and meld installed locally, but when I go to VC->directory->diff,
it shows me the generic output from diff, not meld.
How do I configure GeanyVC to use meld?
