[Geany-Users] Sorting a selection of code

    Line Operations' option to
        Sort Lines Ascending||Descending
    looks good

    But when I try it, instead of sorting my Selection,
    it sorts the whole file ...

    Whereas in the same file, Geany's
        Edit->Format->Send Selection to->Sort
    sorts just the Selection, as expected

    So what am I doing wrong?
