That's not possible, the Document sidebar displays all open files, just
like the editor's tab bar.

Stock Geany project files only stores a list of open files, plus a few
settings, so as you says, closing a file will remove it from the "project".

However, there are plugins you might want to try out that provide
different/enhanced project support, including, I think, what you want
(gproject, geanyprj).


gproject works just fine, but i think this should be a built in feature
