Running Geany on Windows, I can't seem to find a right place to place a tags file to make it load on startup.
According to the documentation:
- Using the Load Tags command in the Tools menu.
This works ok.
- By creating a directory ~/.config/geany/tags, and moving or
symlinking the tags files there before starting Geany.
- By creating a directory $prefix/share/geany/tags, and moving or
symlinking the tags files there before starting Geany. $prefix is the installation prefix (see Installation prefix).
But not this. I tried placing the file in C:\Users\User\Geany 0.18.1.1\share\geany\tags C:\Users\User\Geany 0.18.1.1\tags
You can check that its the right prefix by running geany from the command line with geany --print-prefix
That will tell you if C:\Users\User\Geany 0.18.1.1\ is where to put things.
I'm not sure if that works on Windows, could try it though. I think the docs for Windows paths need to be improved.
From looking at the code, the system data dir is the installation
directory plus 'data', e.g.: C:\Program Files\geany\data
For the user config dir you could try Tools->configuration Files->filetype_extensions.conf. The path for that file should be the same as the path to add a 'tags' directory.
Let us know how you get on and I'll update the documentation.
