So I searched the web far and wide and I can not for the life of me figure out how to do this.

I have the following key binding:

nnoremap <leader>o :below 10sp term://.//$SHELL <cr> :set winfixheight <cr> i

Which works initially and if I open horizontal splits above the :term but if I open anything below the :term, fzf for example the :term resizes once I close the fzf window.

I know the above is a bit difficult to understand so I have attached a gif trying to demonstrate.

  • have you tried something with autocommands ? see vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/autocmd.html – nobe4 Apr 19 '16 at 8:42
  • @Nobe4 I have used autocmd before but I am not sure how I would use them is this case? – Otis Wright Apr 19 '16 at 9:02

    My first guess would be to trigger a custom function on each resizing (e.g. WinEnter, WinLeave, but others may be more suitable) that apply :resize 60 to the desired split. Or maybe with the 'winheight' option. – nobe4 Apr 19 '16 at 9:06
  • Hey @Nobe4 any idea how I would target that window/split specifically I have looked at setting a custom ID but I can't quite seem to get it working. – Otis Wright Apr 19 '16 at 9:27
  • Not a true solution, and won't apply in all cases, but I find myself reflexively doing <C-a>_ from the split you want to fix. Resolves the issue for me, but would love a real solution, so I wouldn't have to do this. – J.M. Janzen May 16 '20 at 17:37
