In the current version there's no easy way how to edit hidden files (file names starting with dot). Currently I use terminal to open these files by typing "geany .filename"). I would like to have a possibility to show these files in a file/tree browser and to easily edit them. I use ver. 1.22 on Arch Linux.

    Did you try File->Open? The GTK+ file chooser dialog that pops up lets you select hidden files if you right click in the file list and select "Show Hidden Files". Is that what you're after?

    Yes, I already found that way. Anyway it would be great to be able to open the files diretly via file browser or tree browser.

    Maybe the best way would be to add an option in file preferences to show/hide hidden files.

    The Documents tab in the sidebar will show whatever files are open, whether they start with a "." or not. The File Browser plugin that comes with Geany has a "Show Hidden Files" option when you right click on the files list in the sidebar. Not sure about the Treebrowser plugin, but for that you might want to open a feature request on the tracker for the Geany-Plugins project[1].

    PS. Feel free to open another feature request for "Allow the ability to open files directly from the file browser" or whatever.
