Make new vertical/horizontal split in previously existing vertical/horizontal split

Answered

Hi,

 

if I already have a vertical/horizontal split open and I split another file horizontally or vertically, by default it creates a new split.  I'd like to control this behavior with a keyboard shortcut so the split will go to an existing vertical/horizontal split instead.  

I've attached screenshots show my editor with 3 splits already.  The second screenshot is what happens if I just create a new vertical split (now there are 3).  The third screenshot is the behavior I want so that there are still 2 vertical splits (it just moved to the closest right split).

You can do it without the mouse using Ctrl-Shift-A to search for action, then entering "spl hor", then do it again, "spl ver". If you want, you can bind each of those actions in your keymapping.
