I'm using Geany 1.24.1 which is my understanding using/based off of Scintilla.
I was told that this is an issue that needs to be directed to the Scintilla developers and I hope this will get great consideration in a next release.
I personally need a text editor that gives syntax hightlight for various $VARIABLES,
often used when compiling source from build scripts;
Anything and everything listed with $ that can be thought of and used. Right now this is not supported in Scintilla for syntax color highlighting.
Thank you very much for your time and consideration and hopes on seeing this soon...
