I was playing around with setting columns and then turning wrap on&off.

The screenshot actually shows an empty buffer. To reproduce:set columns=80 number, make a huuuuge line of i-s and turn wrap on and off. With vim -u NONE as in the screenshot it felt it's a bit harder to reproduce than in my normally configured version but still happens. Any idea why? Is this a known bug or something that I can prevent?

  • I can reproduce with my regular vimrc, but not if I use the default settings with vim -Nu NONE, so it seems affected by some other setting, too. If you can make it reproduce with vim -Nu NONE you can file a bug on the Vim issue tracker. Aug 17, 2022 at 11:46

    I don't follow. Is this an empty buffer or not (filled with is)? What version? What terminal? Aug 17, 2022 at 12:41
  • Terminal is kitty 0.25.0, vim is 9.0. The screenshot is an empty buffer AFTER I filled it with a ton of i-s (single line), flipped wrap a few times and then deleted the line.

  • Didn't know about the -N option, but I'll check with that as well, and then maybe try to incrementally figure out if it is one of my settings.

  • -N is set nocompatible; just gives you slightly more modern defaults for various settings that are not compatible with vi from 70s/80s. Aug 18, 2022 at 0:32
