With a monospaced font it works.
I don't know why i didn't used a monospaced font up from the start as

Yes I mean the sidebar.
There are entrys like "Members", "Makro", "Struckt / Typedef" ,  
"Variablen", "Sonstiges"
(These are entrys in the german version)
All these entrys are empty.
On the otherside there are Entrys like "Klassen" and "Funktionen"  
presenting a (colapsable) tree with all classes or functions in the  
current sourcecode.
I Know these entrys are only filled, when there is a counterpart in the  
But while I don't use a class there is no need for a "Klassen" entry in  
the sidebar. The same for "Makros".

Why is the Entry "Variablen" not filled even if there are variables in my  

here are som lines in python  (just an excerpt, not runable):

    def __init__(self, values):
       self.values = values

       self.border_bottom = border_bottom
       self.border_left = border_left

Filetype = *.py

# this test demonstrates how the words " class comment1 " and " def  
comment1 "are interpreted by geany
## this test demonstrates how the words " class comment2 " and " def are  
interpreted by geany
''' this test demonstrates how the words " class string1 " and " def

Only line 3 seems to bee  problematic.
