Re: editting multiple files/tabstop in xml mode
- 1. What about the following:
starts vim with 3 windows open
opens file1 in window 1 (ou don't need the gui for that)
Of course, you must type the filename here so vim knows which file
goes to window 2 and opens file2 there
opens file3 in window 3
switches to window 1 (where file1 is being edited)
2. You don't need the gui to delete or wipe a buffer.
see :h :bw
3: I don't know
4: maybe see :h 'indentexpr'
