Can anyone can help me, my vim always shows the cursorline, like this:

14 lines of underlined text

I have set nocursorline in the ~/.vimrc, but it has no effect.

vim version is: 7.4.622

VIM Version 7.4.622

vim is run on OSX 10.10.3, how to remove the white line.

  • This doesn't look like the cursorline. It's probably something in your vimrc file. See: How do I debug my vimrc file?. – Martin Tournoij May 20 '15 at 11:15

    I've seen something similar in the past. I never got to the root cause of it, but I'm pretty sure it was related to a font problem, not to Vim. – lcd047 May 20 '15 at 11:25
  • @lcd047 Thanks for your hint. I change my font size from 18 to 19, and it works. I agree that it's a font problem. – lutaoact May 21 '15 at 2:25
  • @lutaoact maybe you could answer your own question so as it doesn't stay unanswered :) – statox May 26 '15 at 18:19

Maybe it's font problem, not vim. I change my font size from 18 to 19, and it works. You can make it as what I have done. I didn't change the font of vim, I just change the font size of terminal.

    To be more useful to other people you could also indicate how you changed the size of your font ;) If I remember well on gVim and MacVim it is with the option guifont. – statox May 28 '15 at 9:51
