I am not sure if it is even possible but, when I am working with vertical splits, sometimes, I want both of them to scroll up/down at the same time rather than using this combination:

  1. scroll down ctrle
  2. focus on left splitctrlL
  3. scroll down ctrle
  4. focus on right ctrlw + ctrlH

It would be amazing to use ctrlE and achive to same result.

Thanks! :)

You want scrollbind.

Use :set scb on each window you which to bind together, then it should be possible to scroll them together.

Additionally this command may come in handy: :windo set scrollbind! - this toggles scrollbind all windows

see :h scroll-binding, and :h scrollbind for full details.

Also note that cursorbind, diff and scrollopt settings are somewhat related to what you are doing.
