Vim tip 4: reposition current line in Normal mode
You're likely to be familiar with commands to scroll through the contents like Ctrl followed by d or f or u or b.
Did you know that Vim also has handy options to keep the cursor on the current line while moving the contents around?
- zz reposition the current line to the middle of the visible window
- useful to see context around lines that are nearer to the top/bottom of the visible window
- zt reposition the current line to the top of the visible window
- zb reposition the current line to the bottom of the visible window
See :h 'scrolloff' option if you want to always show context around the current line.
