Reporting gedit bugs

Before filing a new bug, please search GitLab to see if it has already been reported.

If you do find a bug that is not on GitLab, please make sure that:

  • You are using an up-to-date version of gedit. The last two stable versions are accepted. For example, if gedit 3.18 is the latest stable version, make sure that you use either the latest 3.16.x or the latest 3.18.x. To have a list of the available versions, see the source downloads.

  • And that you are only using the Adwaita GTK 3 theme (i.e. the default theme), because other GTK themes may not fully support gedit.
