GTK apps let you input Unicode characters directly using CTRL+SHIFT+U+<keycode>. This works in Geany, too, but the behaviour is different from other GTK apps and could be improved.
other GTK apps:
Press and hold CTRL+SHIFT. Press and release U to start 'unicode input mode'. Now type <keycode>, still holding CTRL+SHIFT. Release CTRL+SHIFT to leave the input mode and the character will appear.
Exactly the same as above, but after releasing CTRL+SHIFT you have to confirm your input with ENTER.
Clearly, the last keypress (ENTER) isn't needed, as the release of CTRL+SHIFT already indicates that the keycode sequence is finished.
