I installed the latest Neovim 0.4 from scratch, install 'vim-plug', then add only 4 lines to my init.vim:

call plug#begin('d:/neovim/nvim/plugged')
Plug 'ap/vim-buftabline'
set hidden
call plug#end()

Then create two buffers with

:badd aaa
:badd bbb

Then it looks like this

enter image description here

I trid different plugins like vim-buftabline, vim-wintabs, vim-airline, same issue, it must be problem with the configuration, what do I miss?

  • I dont use vim-plug, but do you maybe need to :PlugInstall or something?
