Note: version 23 or later of ZoomWin requires vim 7.2 or later
Press <c-w>o : the current window zooms into a full screen
Press <c-w>o again: the previous set of windows is restored
The idea is to make it easy to zoom into and out of a window. ZoomWin supports normal windows, and it now also supports scratch-windows, no-name windows, and modified-buffer windows.
* ZoomWin is a 7.2 plugin (as of v23)
* Files are made hidden during zoom-in and restored upon zoom-out
* All windows' file contents will be restored during zoomouts.
* ZoomWin will clean up any temporary files it generates upon exit.
* Session files are guaranteed to be unique to each vim session, so multiple vims can use zoom-in/out without interfering with one another
A later version may be available at .
When zooming in, ZoomWin's window is full sized, with no loss of screen space to status lines for other windows, unlike vimscript#1280 (ToggleOnly), for those vims compiled with the +mksession feature. For those vims without that feature, v21 ZoomWin now supports partial-zoom-in (leaves a status line behind for each window).
Ron Aaron came up with the original ZoomWin and gave permission to have it posted.
