I want to hide the statusline, I don't ever use nor care about what is written in it. The problem is vim doesn't offer a way to achieve that in a convenient manner. If I just do
set laststatus=0 I will suffer from the artifact mentioned in this question. If I do
set laststatus=1 and set
fillchars=stl:\ the status line will be invisible but well, still take a line of space, which is annoying...
Is there a way to hide the status line for good (both in single and multiple windows mode) without suffering from the artifacts mentioned in the previous question?
I'd appreciate any help, tired of fighting my tools to get them to do what I want.
