first of all, i found geany only some weeks ago and i
really like it a lot, but the syntax highliting colors
are not really what i like :/
i looked into the code and found all the colors are
hardcored.

it would be nice to have either different
"colorschemes" or make the colors for the different
types (comments, strings, chars, etc.) configurable in
the preferences.

keep up the good work! :>
and thanks for the program.

    Syntax highlighting colours are not hardcoded, see the
    documentation for Filetype definition files:
    http://geany.uvena.de/manual/ch03s08.html

    The [styling] Section explains the format for each style.

    In future this may be configurable in Preferences.

    oh, didn't know about that, sorry.
    but it would be very nice to be able to edit the colors
    using a color picker or sth like that in the preferences.

    This will be done, but don't ask me when. There are some
    more important things to do before. I close this request and
    wrote it to the TODO list.
