I want to remove the split separators without any leftover empty space. Is such functionality exposed?

  • Whilst it isn't possible, you can effectively make it "invisible" by setting the foreground and background colour of VertSplit to be the same as your background e.g. :hi VertSplit guifg=bg guibg=bg. It still occupies one column though. Feb 27, 2021 at 13:53
  • @AndrewHo-Lee Yes, I was aware of that but I need seamless continuity between windows in my imagined specific use case. Only route left is to build a custom UI on top of neovim.

  • Fair enough, looks like you're right, it's either patching or building something on top of [neo]vim. Feb 27, 2021 at 14:08
  • I knew we'd covered this issue before, but took me a while to find it. Turns out, this question is not quite a duplicate, but it's very strongly related: vi.stackexchange.com/questions/2938/…

It is currently not possible. A NeoVim issue requesting that was closed.
