I'm working on a project.
Want to outline it something like this:
page 1 - title page
page 2 - list of steps
(presently have some at least 13 steps)
subsequent pages are one page (or set) per step
What I would like to have:
write out list of steps
each step is a page (or group - whatever it takes to put enough down
to get the item done!)
if I add a new step into the list the rest just move down one number
and my work continues.
Is this something (maybe a chapter page (my list) and then each
chapter is the function) that I can easily set up in Geany?
(Does this question make any sense to anyone else - - - rueful grin!).
I am using Geany 1.37 with Windows 11. I wish to build an html file from a markdown source file. In the Build > Set Build Commands dialog, I typed in the following command:
python -m markdown %f > %e.html
When I click on the build command in the Build drop down menu, the markdown file compiles, but the output is displayed in the Compile window at the bottom of the screen. I can see all of the html code just fine, but the output is NOT put into the desired html file. It’s as if Geany stops reading the build command after it gets to the “%f”.
I have replaced the %f and %e with actual file names, but it still doesn’t output to a file. If I run the same command from a DOS command window separately from Geany, everything works just fine and I get the desired html file. But it doesn’t work from within Geany. It appears as if Geany is not recognizing the “>” character which I believe should output the html code into the %e.html file.
Is there other syntax I should use to tell Geany to build the source file into an output file? If I recall correctly, I had successfully done this in the past with Geany on a Linux computer, but since I switched to Windows 11, I haven’t been able to get Geany to output to a file.
Thanks for any help y’all can provide.
Thanks to everyone. I'm going to have to put this issue on the back
burner....I have to spend most of my time helping my wife. She has

I'm having problems reading Geany messages on my Android cell phone. I'm
able to read messages on my desktop (win10) machine.
A couple of months ago my Motorola Droid cell phone died a horrible death. I
replaced it with another Motorola Droid.
Both had the Android operating system installed.
I had the email program activated on the dead phone and also have the same
program active on the new phone.
I was able to read the Geany group emails on the old one, but not the new
I can see the email, but when I attempt to read the contents I get indicates
there is no application that can decompress the file.
When I attempt to download the file the error changes to indicate that
download is not authorized.
So, what is the program that is used to decompress the file? (Or other info
to permit me to read the messages.)

If I echo some colored text into a file and then look at it in Geany I
see 'ESC' where the escape code is, but how can I recreate that
manually? I've tried '\e[' and '\x1b[' and a few other things but
