I have next problem: When I use :term buffers the :wqa command produces error:

enter image description here

Which is quite expected because terminal buffers isn't writable. BUT the :wa and :q separatly work. This is strange.

To be sure I used next commands:

$ nvim -u NONE +term

    If you're concerned about the extra keystokes just add a new command command WQ wa | qa

Just do :wa and then :qa. This is because you can't write the buftype of terminal which you're trying to do when but :wa doesn't try to write the term buffer

  • I do know this, but I wont to make 7 keystrokes instead of 5. Actually, I think this is a bug, so there is no workaround. Jul 2, 2023 at 6:09
