It would be nice if you could disable bold fonts altogether in the editor.
On some system+font combinations (e.g. Ubuntu + DejaVu) bold fonts look quite bad / are unreadable.
Geany version 0.21 did not use bold fonts and it looked okay.

I'm using Arch Linux, kernel 3.6.6 x86_64, with Geany 1.22.

    Yes there are some crappy bold fonts, but that isn't a reason to disable them for those systems that are sensible. So this is unlikely to be implemented.

    You can either choose a different font or if you really don't want bold you can make a new colour scheme with no bolds and place that on the wiki for others so affected.

    I use this:

    Put in ~ dir, it disables screwing up crappy fonts (even more) by faking their boldness.
