Markdown syntax: bad link recognition after pressing return #971

Copy link

This is probably a bug in scintilla / ctags / whatever. Please forward appropriately.

Save the following as a normal file:

Hello [lovely


Note that the line breaks are important. Asdf should be on the forth line.

Open this file in geany, move the cursor to the end of the line (right after the closing parenthesis that closes the link) and press 'return'. ('Enter' has the same effect.)

Expected behavior: a new line appears. Duh. (Nothing else should change.)

Actual behavior: a new line appears … and everything afterwards is also part of that link. At least that's what the syntax highlighting suddenly indicates. The whole rest of the file is affected; it doesn't reset at paragraph boundaries or any other sane "well no kind of formatting can cross this point anyway" border.

Manual workaround: find the "link" that caused all this, insert a character before it and delete it again. This seems to cause re-parsing of the link, and this time it works.

$ geany --version
geany 1.27 (git >= d1fcd9f) (kompiliert am 2016-01-03 mit GTK 2.24.29, GLib 2.46.2)
