I'm using Geany for the first time and I love it.
One feature I'd like to see, is one that I see in a lot in IDEs: the ability to double-click a tab to maximize its size.
Typically, such a feature would hide or overlay other panels so that the double-clicked tab can utilize the most possible screen real estate from within the application.
This is a toggling type feature: double-clicking the tab again would return the text-editor back to it's default view that Geany offers.
After investigating a little further, I can see that this feature would be very easy to add.
All that would have to be done is this:
When someone double-clicks a tab, the program could (behind the scenes) uncheck any of these checked options from the view menu:
Upon this double-click, the program should take note of the state of these options before doing the un-checking.
Then, on the next double-click of a tab (any tab), it could then toggle back to the previous settings.
