Is it possible to swap the order of the command line and status line, such that the status line is flush with the bottom?

Or better yet, completely disable the command line - but I understand that not to be possible.

  1. What you call the "mode line" is actually called "command line".

  2. You can't move it around.

  3. You can't disable it.

  • I didn't know what it was called, the tag seemed to refer to it though? Shame about the answer, but thanks nonetheless.

    No "modeline" is something else entirely. See :help modeline.

In Vim 9.0.0114 and Neovim 0.8 (prerelease), set cmdheight=0 hides the command line.
