I want to start off by saying that I love geany, I use
it full time now. :) There are, however, two big
annoyances for me. The first has already been taken
care of in SVN (opening multiple geany's and that weird
error msg), thanks!
The other involves quitting. In preferences, the
options are to confirm quitting or not. If confirm is
checked, it will ask me if I want to quit regardless of
whether I have made any changes, which I find
irritating. If confirm is unchecked, it will close
geany without a problem even if files have
modifications, thus losing work.
In my opinion, geany should not have this preference at
all and should handle things more intelligently. Like
most text editors, it should prompt you for quitting if
there are modified files, and should not prompt you if
there are no modified files. There's no need to hold
the user's hand provided you prompt them when a file
has been modified so that they can't accidently lose work.
Hopefully you consider making this change. Having to
choose between any annoying confirm message and
potentially losing work is a tough decision. Thanks
again for the great app!
