I don't really know how to word the title correctly, but when I have listchars enabled with the precedes symbol set as <, when it's next to a = sign it becomes the "less than or equal to" ligature.


Here in the top left corner you can see the precedes < and the = sign. But when I scroll a character to the right, the < and = are next to each other and it renders a ligature:

enter image description here

Can I somehow make it so that the ligature only renders when it's part of the actual text? I would like to keep ligatures and the same precedes symbol.

    Ligatures aren’t a vim thing; theyre a feature of your font and terminal emulator (so, there’s nothing vim can do to stop them, AFAIK).
