[Geany-Users] # user definable keywords

Works for me with latest Geany development version.

The `user1` keywords are highlighted by the `keyword_3` style.  To
change that you should edit that style in the style file you are using
(which is filetypes.common if you are using the default style and
menu->tools->configuration files->filetypes.common will load it).
