I've got a few tabs open with different window setups.
I'd like to open a new blank buffer in the current window, without having any more splits/windows or tabs
Is there any way to do this?
I know I could do something like
C-w j then
:q but that seems a bit messy.
Or similar with tabs:
I'm slightly confused about the relationship between windows and buffers in general - you can have lots of buffers open without being visible which you can clean up using
bd but if they aren't visible then they must be saved, because you can't hide them (using :q) without either saving or discarding changes... that seems a little odd.
