I would like to have a very tall virtual display to browse code in vim.
Is it possible to split tmux into two column panes, so that the right pane continues the left pane?
So that I can scroll in one and it scrolls both appropriately. Thank you

You can open up one pane in tmux, and have the same file opened in two vertically split windows in vim, and use scrollbind to lock their scrolling to achieve what you're looking for.
