Lines in VIM that wordwrapped on show @ on that line instead of the text if any part of the text is off-screen. How do I get it so I can see partial wordwrapped text like other editors?

Before:

alt text

After:

alt text

Just to clarify, it's only when you have a very long line and it wraps past the bottom of the viewable area? –  hometoast Jan 13 '11 at 18:27

Add this to your ~/.vimrc or _vimrc:

set display=lastline

See

:help 'display'

for more information.

you might want set display+=lastline in the unlikely situation in which you already have the uhex option set. –  frabjous Jan 13 '11 at 19:49
