Matlab syntax highlighting: comment character specifications in filetypes.matlab ignored,
Attempting to implement multiline comments for Matlab (.m) files:
I copy filetypes.matlab from <install_root>/share/geany/ to ~/.config/geany/filedefs/, and specify
I then reload configs (or restart Genay). This has no apparent effect; specifically, it does not cause multiline comments to be syntax highlighted as comments. In fact I notice that changing the comment_single character has no effect either; however, the ~/.config/geany/filedefs/filetypes.matlab file is not being ignored completely, since e.g. altering the primary keywords list in that file does have the appropriate effect.
