Right now, Ctrl+B goes to the matching bracket.

Shift+key or a left click will select.

So naturally, doing ctrl+shift+b should select from one bracket to the other. This can be very helpful when copying large functions and so on.

    Hi,
    Currently you can do this with the Lua scripting plugin, which comes with a script to select between brackets. Since Geany 0.14 you can assign a keybinding such as ctrl-shift-b to this.

    But if someone wants to write a patch for the core to support this, we will likely accept it.
