Bug Description

I have an idea for a feature that would benefit programmers. It would be nice if Geany had a single button that could be clicked that would remove all blank lines. Then, all of the code would not be separated by empty lines.

Hi, it would be great if you reported this to the Geany feature tracker at http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=153444&atid=787794

I'm afraid I don't see the use case for such a feature, in source code formatting blank lines often are important for readability. So, this probably won't be added in Geany core, maybe a plugin.

However, note that using the Custom Command feature you can quite easily implement the feature using grep:

  grep -v '^[ \t]*$'
