As title, is there any options in vim that can do that?

Need a way to control messages system in vim, and as usual even hard-coded, still need preserve some options for users.

  • What message exactly are you trying to hide? I also don't follow your second sentence ("need preserve some optins for users")? Jan 3, 2018 at 23:08
  • When I try to open a new file, an absolute path of that file will appear at command bar, I'd like it to be hiden. I've found that F in shortmess options do the things. Thanks for your reply. Jan 4, 2018 at 2:07
  • You should add that as an answer, instead of an edit. It's fine to answer your own question :-) Jan 4, 2018 at 2:21
