Remove both scrollbars from MacVim

If you use MacVim you may encounter the gray Mac OS scrollbar on the right side.

When you split the window you may encounter two scrollbars, one on each side.

I find that to ruin the look of MacVim, especially with a dark colorscheme (I use Dracula).

example

To remove only the left one use

set guioptions=r

This will tell vim to always show the right scrollbar only. To remove only the right one use

set guioptions=l

To remove all scrollbars, remove everything after the equal sign

set guioptions=

example

Add this to your vimrc for a consistent experience.
