I have a long data line:
When I switch off wrapping and place the cursor somewhere in the middle, it looks like this:
Here I see the "extends' listchar, but not the "precedes".
I also made the window smaller and larger (up to fullscreen), tried various intervals within the line, started vim with
.vim/ removed, and used
set listchars=precedes:a,extends:b: nothing revealed the missing "precedes" char.
Is this a bug or do I have to do more than setting the listchars?
