This might not be a current possibility but
what about a swap and or difference option when a file already exists when you go to save the current.The "swap" could simply move the the already existing file to a temporary location, renaming it, and allow for swapping back to the original. Also what I mean by difference is an option to see how exactly the new file would differ from the old one, line by line of course. I think these would be good additions personally, especially if you're testing or comparing code.

Thanks for any feedback in advance,
Fenris.

    Remember Geany is an editor.
    Your request sounds more like a task for a file manager.

    That's a good point, *but* Geany does handle projects, build, compile and execution.
    Maybe the request would be more suited for a plug in though.
