With the Markers Margin hidden, you don't have arrow or plus, so the
entire line is highlighted instead, with background = 2nd argument of
marker_line and transluency = 1st argument of marker_translucency.
Blending the arrow or plus sign would a bit pointless.

If you open the standard geany.conf in Geany, the changes are applied
immediately on Save. At least the highlighting.
