The forum has an entire FreePascal section, that has nothing to do with Lazarus. And many other discussions are about the language and not the IDE.

Despite the name of the forum, it's shared with the fpc community. So its two in one.

There are people working on extensions for Visual Studio Code, so they can use this....

If I may ask, I would still be interested in hearing about what you prefer in your chosen tools?

What are these minor issues? Did you report them if they are indeed bugs?

A strong contender that is the most intriguing alternative, which is also incorporated with Lazarus, is fpGUI.

It's great that it was embraced, so there is an interface for it.  I think there is more that can be done with it, possibly with mobile platforms.  I like that it's written in Object Pascal.

Fred vS:

You may consider ideU, it is a fork of mseide with integrated msegui and fpGUI form-designer, auto-competion code, integrated debugger, ...
With build-in macros to fully integrate fpGUI source.

Some features of ideU are inspired from Geany, like "compile the edited unit" (not only all the project), multi-compiler choice, ...
