I usually work in a drop-down terminal, running about 25 characters high. Since I prefer tabs to windows1, usually a lot of horizontal space is wasted - around half of the terminal width.
On top of that, Vim, with the default setting of
helpheight, leaves just about a couple of lines of the file content when I open a help window:
Is there a way to make
:h use a vertical split?
<C-W>Lto manually move the window
- make a map or a custom command which does the above for me.
Is there a simpler way?
1I do use windows when I need to look at multiple files together. But usually I prefer each file to be in its own (mental) context.
