    No matter how many Vim Tips & Tricks articles I encounter, I always learn something new

      I’m not sure if Bram Moolenaar himself knows everything his own software is capable off.

      An extensive list! I never knew about gx either, seems like that should be included in vimtutor

      I can’t seems to get breakindent/showbreak to work as described, it just prepends each wrapped line with \\\… does anyone know how to get this to work?

        They might have some issue going on with the blog post formatting, maybe it’s meant to be 4 (escaped?) spaces? Instead of setting showbreak to 4 spaces, you can set breakindentopt to shift:4.

        Here’s my config:

        set breakindent " indent wrapped lines, by...
        set breakindentopt=shift:4,sbr " indenting them another level and showing 'showbreak' char
        set showbreak=↪

          That works perfectly, thanks!
