I usually use a layout of one vertical split and two different buffers. When i use :copen, the quickfix window always opens in the right split, regardless where my cursor is. Consequently, if my cursor is in the left split, and I issue the commands :copen, :cclose, the buffer is changed.

Is there any way of opening the quickfix window in the same vertical split where my cursor is?

    I'm not sure you can easily make it open in the current split but you could use :botright copen to make the window occupy the full width. – statox Jul 13 '17 at 7:36
  • @Isund The quickfix window has the special filetype qf so you could also use an autocommand like autocmd! FileType qf Myfunction() using a function which puts the window where you want. – statox Jul 13 '17 at 9:56
