A scratch buffer can be created by passing the
-scratchswitch to the
As https://github.com/mawww/kakoune/commit/5440d31f995d9143e4f14a343a41aaab227ffbad specified it this is when any non debug buffers exists
But on my Arch Linux pre-packaged kak, invoking it, does not open the default **scratch** buffer.
I tried to follow some of the discussions regarding this issue, but I didn’t see anything that would be related
Bottom line is that my pre-packaged kak does not have a scratch buffer.
I’m wondering if my configuration or if other flags were passed during compilation of kak. But I guess if it’s the latter, the maintainer is obviously whom to ask in this case.
