I'm using vim with the solarized dark color scheme within the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Solarized looks great except for one strange feature. When I scroll down in a vim file and then scroll back up, the empty space at the ends of the lines that were hidden when I scrolled down are highlighted in a distracting red color.
I have an imperfect workaround. By running
:set background=dark within vim, the red highlighting temporarily goes away, but I am looking for a more permanent solution.
Here is the relevant section of my
syntax enable set background=dark let g:solarized_termcolors=256 colorscheme solarized
I installed vim from altercation/vim-colors-solarized repository using the manual installation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
