I wonder if it’s possible to hide the gutter temporarily, so that it’s easier to copy and paste part of a file I’m editing from the terminal window.
Yes, I know there are ways to interact with the system clipboard, but the kakoune instance is running in a tmux window inside an SSH session where I can’t get X forwarding to work.
In vim, I “just” selected the text to paste, then did
:<,>w !cat, so that it launched
cat on the selection. Needless to say, I’m hoping for a less convoluted workflow, hence the question. I’m open for suggestions that doesn’t involve hiding the gutter at all, but that seems like the simplest thing I could think of to achieve what I want, right after I failed to find something equivalent to the vim command. If toggling the gutter is too much effort, I’d also be OK with copying the selection to a fresh buffer without a gutter, for example.
