yes i have it working...and use it on a daily basis for my work ...but just
I hard-coded my font choice in set_sci_style... and left the fileypes.foo
untouched for now....
hackish, but just wanted to find out if it was possible in some way at that

ok...it's probably silly, as i'm not an experienced C programmer...and
didn't spend a lot of time on it...
but as I told you, I expanded the GeanyLexerStyle structure....

in get_keyfile_style and get_key_file_hex my adds to the filetypes.foo are
properly read...
and when i print out my new element of the struct it's either null or the
fontname I've just entered in the file....

but when i try to access my new entry in a another function (such as
set_sci_style), it has been obviously been written over by something
i'm sure it's something obvious as when I replace the new entry gchar*
fontname by gint font_size.... (and so expecting font size dto be declared
instead of a font name) then i got it working as intended...
I could just add a number after the italic boolean entry in filetype.foo and
it would be picked up as a font size, and transmitted through

I'll look into that...it's not a real nuisance as it is anyway....
