When you open a CSV file with the CSV.vim plugin the separators, such as semicolons, do not visually divide the columns in a format like the screenshot below. How can I visually separate the columns like tabstop with CSV.vim plugin?

    I'm not sure I completely understand your question but maybe tabular is what you are looking for? I allows you to automatically add enough spaces between separators to align them vertically. – statox Jan 25 '17 at 12:58

    Read the documentation. – Christian Brabandt Jan 25 '17 at 17:39

You can use the :ArrangeColumn for that.

From the documentation :

If you would like all columns to be visually arranged, you can use the 
`:ArrangeColumn` or `:CSVArrangeColumn` command.
