<C-w>+ does not do anything. It works with horizontal splits though. What am I missing?

Edit: I have also tried <C-w>> and :res +30 but these two things don't work either. There's no remap for these commands AFAIK and checked.

To change the width of the split you need to use Ctrl w< and Ctrl w>.

More information with: :help wincmd or :help Window-resize.

The following commands could also be of some help:

  • :vertical resize +10

If you want to change the size of your split you could be interested to the winresizer plugin.
