I like to open the highlighted file in ranger in split of remote vim session.

:shell vim --remote-send "<C-\><C-n>:vsp %d/%f<CR>"

Rather than file /path/to/directory/highlighted-file I see in vim open file '/path/to/directory'/'highlighted-file' naturally I cannot save. I tried to escape percent symbols and quotation marks unsuccessfully. How to open current file in split of remote vim session?


The problem is solved by changing double quotes to single ones:

:shell vim --remote-send '<C-\><C-n>:vsp %d/%f<CR>'
