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!).
Yes. And I'm reasonalbly certain it can be done in Geany. The key would be
finding a way to insert a form feed character at the bottom of each page. That
shouild work for printing.
If youi intend to display your project electronically, we'd need to know how
(with what software) you iintend to present it. If you intend to use HTML,
I'm fairly certain there is a form feed or page break type markup that will
start a new page.
From a quick google search:
› character › control › 12 › 0x0C › ff-form-feed
ASCII character FF - Form Feed. ^L. Dec: 12, Bin: 00001100, Hex: 0C
Form feed is an ASCII control character, which breaks the page. It makes the
printer to throw out the current page and then to keep on printing at the top
of another any. It will also cause a carriage return in many cases. The
definition of form feed character code is 12 (0xC in hexadecimal). It also may
be represented as control+L or ^L.
Maybe someone else will know how to enter a form feed character in Geany (or
if it is possible).

If you reply: snip, snip, and snip again; leave attributions; avoid HTML;
avoid top posting; and keep it "on list". (Oxford comma (and semi-colon)

If you change the topic, start a new thread.
Writing is often meant for others to read and understand (legal documents

liberal use of whitespace (short paragraphs, separated by whitespace / blank

A speaker who uses ahhs, ums, or such may have a real physical or mental
disability, or may be showing disrespect for his listeners by not properly
preparing in advance and thinking before speaking. (Remember Cicero who did
not have enough time to write a short missive.) (That speaker might have been
"trained" to do this by being interrupted often if he pauses.)
A radio (or TV) station which broadcasts speakers with high pitched voices (or
very low pitched / gravelly voices) (which older people might not be able to
hear properly) disrespects its listeners. Likewise if it broadcasts
extraneous or disturbing sounds (like gunfire or crying), or broadcasts
speakers using their native language (with or without an overdubbed
A person who writes a sig this long probably has issues and disrespects (and
offends) a large number of readers. ;-)
