Sigh as the manual
don't edit the system file. It will be overwritten when you upgrade, edit
the user config one.
And Menu->Tools->Configuration files->geany.css should load the system one
if there is no user one but save to the user directory, and thereafter open
the user one.
PS please keep all communications on the list
