This is already implemented in the current SVN version.

As long as the file where the error occurred, it is already possible by
double clicking on the appropriate line. How do you want to do this
with a hotkey?

Project management is already on the ToDo list, it will come with 0.9
or so. Please be patient.

(I think this point should not belong to the project management item)
Yes, this is a problem. Solution: project management ;-).
Workaround: use make with own target and specify -f ../makefile as
argument, then make will find the makefile. But this will fail if you
edit foo.c. Sorry, this can only be solved by a project management. Or
perhaps you can create a symlink in bar to ../makefile. But this is not
very nice.

Ok, this is easy to implement.
Nick, what do you think?

Hmm, I'm not sure whether Geany will ever have this. I don't want so big
things in Geany. Perhaps after Geany 1.0, but only perhaps.

Thanks for your mail.
