Is there any way to disable MacVim's Command + S shortcut for saving files? I'm sure there's a way to do it, since the same is possible with the Command + T shortcut by doing this:

if has("gui_macvim")
    macmenu &File.New\ Tab key=<nop>

You are right on it. Using the same logic, following the menu items.

if has("gui_macvim")
    macmenu &File.Save key=<nop>

So close! This works if the file hasn't already been saved, but if the file has already been given a filename pressing Command+S does what it should. – Wuffers Dec 21 '11 at 0:25
I figured out the rest by myself. I just did map <D-s> <ESC> so it doesn't do anything at all. Thanks a ton! – Wuffers Dec 21 '11 at 0:27
