+1 on having it directly in Geany from me as well.  My quick-search 
plugin works that it highlights all instances the moment your cursor 
highlights any text (any changes to the selection).  That may be a 
potential way to have it work.

As another enhancement that could/should be in core geany, I suggest 
having the find-in-files via grep dialog allow you to navigate to the 
matches without having to double click (just simple selection) and 
keeping the focus on the search results.  Support for ack-grep and/or 
silversearcher-ag and/or moving to the side panel would be nice too.

My quick-find plugin already behaves this way, but having this 
functionality in core may be preferred since searching is already 
integrated in geany.  (quick-find also keys off of the current path in 
treebrowser as a directory base for the search, or uses the project if 
it can't find treebrowser.  I used similar functionality in a python 
plugin for gedit2, so that's why I created quick-find.)

While nobody else seems to be using my plugins at present, I've been 
using them full time for work, and they are pretty stable.  I hope 
nobody is annoyed I keep mentioning them.  Any advice on how I might get 
them read for geany-plugins is appreciated.  I just haven't gotten 
around to it.
