The question is somewhat straightforward. To open a vertical split, I use:
:vs. When opening a vertical split, I'd like to initialize it with a file directly.
If I do
:vs myfile.txt this will move the file I am currently working on to the right and open
myfile.txt on the left of the split.
Rather, I would like the opposite to happen: the file I am working on before the vertical split stays on the left, and
myfile.txt opens on the right of the split.
