  • If you really need it, and you don't find an answer here, post your question to the Vim mailing list [vim.org].

    I'm pretty sure they'll be able to help :-) It's one of the best mailing lists out there :-)

    • Thanks! I just subscribed. I should have done that earlier but I'm awfully used to everyone here just knowing their stuff :)

      (bad Ovid. No Corinna (private joke))

  • Please post about it. I'd love to know a solution or workaround for this.

    Thanks!
  • The 'hidden' option is a secret key to effective Vimming.

    With 'nohidden' set, Vim discards the buffer when you leave it. It loses all its session data, like the undo stack. It's also slower if you switch a lot, because it rereads the file to open the buffer when you switch back to a discarded buffer.

    If you set 'hidden' Vim will keep the buffer around when you leave it. You won't lose anything, except a little memory for the buffer to live in.

    Sometimes I use a box on which I haven't installed my vimrc [manxome.org]
