I often want a new empty vertical pane (vim window / viewport ...) in my current Vim tab.
I know I can get a new empty horizontal pane by doing
I know I can split the current pane into two identical vertical copies with
control+w v, but then I always resort to the awkward workaround of opening a new empty horizontal pane within this vertical pane and then closing the duplicate view of the original pane which I didn't want.
Is there a built in way to just get a blank vertical pane?
