I sent this before when I first signed up but I'm not sure if it went
though, because my list sing-up might not have been fully activated when
I sent it?
Here's the question:
How do I make it so when I double click a variable like $MyVariable, it
selects the words AND the dollar sign, and not just the words? This
seems like a selection boundary issue.
There's also other delimiter issues, like making a hyphen part of a word
instead of a boundary when selecting css classes. ie "my-class" should
be treated as one word.
Regarding Geany on Linux.
I find using the middle mouse button for copy-paste operations very handy. But this does not work within one Geany session unless I first paste in another window (accepting a text copy). Why is the direct paste inhibited and can something be done to change the behaviour to standard?
Thanks for any help that you may give.

Regarding Geany on Linux.
I find using the middle mouse button for copy-paste operations is very handy. But this does not work within one Geany session unless I first paste in another window (accepting a text copy). Why is the direct paste inhibited and can something be done to change the behaviour to standard?
Thanks for any help that you may give.
I'm trying to make use of the radio button that suggests geany will
'remember forever' the logon/passwd details I supply when I logon to my
remote ftp server to access and edit my files.
The login is successful and everything works fine but the details are not
'remembered forever' and are lost after system reboot.
Is there a config folder/file permission issue here somewhere? Any help
I'm using geany 1.33 (built on or after 2018-04-16) on a pi4
running rasbian buster.
I've just installed Geany 1.36 on my Mac (with OS X 10.13.6 High Sierra,
XCode 10.1+command line tools, Python 3.8.2).
I cannot get print('hello world') to run. When I click the two gears
icon the status window shows a message:
"Cannot execute build command "xterm -e "/bin/sh
string.../T/geany_run_script_5H9910.sh" No such file or directory.
Check the terminal setting in Preferences".
The directory exists but there is no geany_run_script in it.
Also (don't know if this is related) the terminal window has a message:
"WARNING: GnuTLS not enabled: data will be written to disk unencrypted".
Any tips? Does it usually just work?
I am a newbie struggling to get started. I can see a lot of potential
in using Geany to process my ".abc" music files so I am sure once I get
going it will be very useful.
I am finding the documentation a little frustrating, I spend all my time
following links to different parts of the documentation file without
ever finding any good examples. What I need right now is a good
tutorial on how to get syntax highlighting working on my new filedef.
Here is an example ".abc" file:

As can be seen it has a very simple structure. Syntax highlighting would
consist of highlighting comment lines (beginning with a single %) -
colour A say, start-of-tune lines (X: lines) - colour B, Title (T:
lines) - colour C, directive lines (beginning %%) - colour D. Then key
words highlighted (M: K: etc) That is about it really, except I would
really like to see all my T:'s in the symbols tab so that I can quickly
go to those tunes (I guess that is a separate issue of tags that I have
not yet delved into)
Here is what I have done so far to make a start:
1) Created an entry in my filetype_extensions file to add:
2) Created a filetypes.ABC.conf file as follows (removing preset comment
primary=X: T: M: K: C: L: Q: K: V: P:
secondary=N S B %%chords endchords staves
This has no effect as it stands, though it is clearly being read because
if I change BOTH [styling] to [styling=C] and "lexer_filetype=ABC"
"lexer_filetype=C" then I get some highlighting, though obviously not
what I am looking for. It is, however, interesting to note that it then
highlights "N", "B", "endchords" but NOT "%%chords" or "X:", "T:" etc -
which makes me think that ":" and "%" may need special treatment -
escaping in some way.
Clearly I am missing something that I am not doing correctly to get the
syntax highlighting to work.
Then there is the question of where to go for the symbols.
A noddy guide to getting started, with examples would be very useful.
Thanks in advance.
I'm wondering if there is some kind of overview somewhere on which Social
Networks Geany is present?
I know, for example, there is a Twitter account, but I wondered, if there
probably also is
some Mastodon account (or something else compatible to this Fediverse
If there isn't it's probably a good idea to create one and document a list
of which accounts we have somewhere in the wiki?
Regards and take care,
Hi Enrico. Thank you very much, it worked fine.
I love Geany, but stoped using since 2011. Now I'm using again ant
trying to contribute with some code.

I am Leandro Ramos, from São Paulo/Brazil.
I am trying to upload a 6.6MB tag file here
<https://wiki.geany.org/tags/start#php_tags>, but I've got an error
after 100% upload. I need some help to start contributing to Geany Wiki.
I'm attaching a screenshot below.
The copy/paste failure described below is associated with the update
from scintilla v3.10.2 to v3.10.4
Git commit 4bceddb449b8727e1d8b449a5d92af5fa53a2405
All is well if I hang back on the 1.35.0 release of geany.
I'm an embedded systems guy, really not very well versed in this UI
stuff. Do you think any of the geany devs might be willing to replicate
this problem? I realize the bug is most likely in Scintilla, but I
don't feel qualified to make that call.
Replication is super easy:
1) Bring up an nedit text window.
2) Type some text in it.
3) Copy it into the clipboard
4) Attempt to paste that text into a geany text window.
geany ignores the paste request.
