I am using debian amd64, with mate desktop.my window  manager is the 
standard MARCO based on methacity from gnome2..
I have even a diferent situation :S

I am using the previous release of Geany 1.23.1, and not the last one, I 
don't know if changed something about this?

with normal size of text:

with scalled size of text:

like you see i have no issues with the scalled image...apart from do not 
get all in the screen cuz is too big lol

With normal text, auto-complete should find the size of the biggest 
element or something and scalle acordingly imho...

My theme is vibrant colours, or ink colours...is something that I found 
, and it turns out to be more visible with my eyes :)

if there is some directive to auto-complete foreground and background it 
would be nice, or the Autocomplete box, could get the foreground and 
background colours of the theme ;)

well, with this I already discovered that with scalling editor, I should 
be able to see the several items, its not ideal, but better than nothing :)

thanks to Mathew and Lex :)
