From the help file for showcmd:

Show (partial) command in the last line of the screen

Is it possible to have the commands displayed on the first line instead? I can't find anything in the help or on the web on this subject.


Unfortunately the answer to this is short and unsatisfactory: No.

All of this logic is hard-coded in Vim. Take a look at display_showcmd() in src/normal.c if you're interested in the exact logic.
