vsplit but when I use
:sbr, vim uses a horizontal split to open the new buffer. This seems directly contrary to what
:help sbr says:
:sbr[ewind] [+cmd] Split window and go to first buffer in buffer list. If the buffer list is empty, go to the first unlisted buffer. Respects the 'switchbuf' option.
:help switchbuf says:
split If included, split the current window before loading a buffer for a |quickfix| command that display errors. Otherwise: do not split, use current window. vsplit Just like "split" but split vertically.
The output of
:version (I'm using Ubuntu 16.04's
VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Nov 24 2016 16:44:48) Included patches: 1-1689 Extra patches: 8.0.0056
I know about
:vert sbr, and I can make an alias to make that more convenient, but I'd really like to figure out what's causing
switchbuf to not work as expected. Thanks!
