I'm a refugee from the Nedit text editor and have now moved to Geany after a very brief fling with Gedit.
I'm on Linux and have 8 virtual desktops and I often work on different projects on different desktops. If I run gedit from the command line gedit will start a new instance if there isn't already a running instance on the current virtual desktop.
I know I can do 'geany -i <file>' to open a new instance, but I was wondering if the behaviour of Gedit could be matched with Geany.
Geany does not know about virtual desktops. These are accessed with Gnome specific libraries and would increase the dependencies of Geany and would make it more complex to keep portable to all desktops and to Windows.
