I have a weird problem with VIM, both at work and at home (2 different computers): When I open a text in VIM, sometimes it is displaying it correctly, sometime not (I'd say 1 every 3 it works fine, others not, it's random) enter image description here

    Does :set ft? say filetype=julia in both cases? Does :version confirm it's the same version of the editor? How about :syntax, does it list a bunch of julia* syntax groups? See if setting filetype manually again fixes it, with :set ft=julia.

    looks like syntax sync issue. Can you press Ctrl-L once it happens next time? Then scroll screen down and press again? Also what syntax do you use? I couldn't find julia in bundled files.

    :syntax sync fromstart is usually a good fix

  • Thank you so much for your replies. Ctrl-L at the top of the file (not at the bottom) worked.
