Is there any way I can split the window as illustrated in the image?

split window


1 Answer 1


I would do:

  1. Go to the first split
  2. Create a horizontal split (:split or Ctrl ws)
  3. Go to the newly created split (Ctrl wj)
  4. Make it span the full horizontal band (Ctrl wJ)
  5. Go to the second split (Ctrl wk Ctrl wl Ctrl wl)
  6. Make it span the full vertical band (Ctrl wL)
