[Geany-Users] fileheader comment-type

Hi Colomban,

thanks for your reply!
I'm using version 0.20 at the moment, so that doesn't work (didn't even 
know that it's so outdated). I've got an old openSUSE version, so there 
is no newer version of geany in the repositories at the moment, but I'll 
update my system soon and then try your solution :-) Until then I'll 
just use a workaround with snippets.

Yes, after I sent the mail, I realized that the "[styling]" thing was 

About the indentation: everything in the fileheader is indented with 6 
whitespaces like this:

  *      main.cpp
  *      [license etc.]

Kind regards,
