I run the following
vim command to change the colour of highlighted columns to something more palatable than the default red:
:highlight ColorColumn ctermbg=235 guibg=#2c2d27
rather than run this manually everytime I start vim, I'd like to automate this. But how? I've tried adding the following to
highlight ColorColumn ctermbg=235 guibg=#2c2d27
But that has no effect (no errors, it's just ignored after restart). Am I doing something wrong? I got the command from this Q:
But it didn't seem to shed light on my particular problem.
