Setting default highlighting of the other pane

asked Feb 24, 2016 in vifm by Dan Osborne

In my Cygwin install of vifm I seem to have lost the default highlighting of the current item in the "other pane" somehow. It seems to now be...

OtherLine cterm=bold,underline,reverse,standout ctermfg=default ctermbg=default

I can set it up each time to something more appropriate (for me anyway) using...

:hi OtherLine cterm=bold ctermfg=default

but how should I specify it in the vifmrc so that it is always set to this?

I tried to compare the vifmrc with my ubuntu version (where the default setting is fine) but couldn't see what was controlling it

Exactly the same way. Although if OtherLine is configured somewhere else, make sure that newly added line is below that.

Ah thanks, putting the line below the existing...

colorscheme Default

did the trick
