please is there a way to activate the right pane on startup (using the -c option)? Could not find anything in the manual.

Thank you!

This should work:

vifm +'wincmd b'

Maybe also add +'wincmd s' or +'wincmd v' to make sure both views are visible.


thank you, no wonder that searching in manual did not reveal it :-)

If you would like to make a bug report or feature request consider using GitHub, SourceForge or e-mail. Posting such things here is acceptable, but this is not a perfect place for them.
