nact - Buffer not active
n - mode line letter.
This mode can not be set and is used to indicate that the buffer has not been activated, i.e. the buffer has not been displayed in a window. If the buffer is linked to a file but has not been displayed, so is not active, the file will not have been loaded into the buffer.
The list-buffers(2) command output denotes active buffers with a '@' character in the left hand column, inactive buffers have a ' '.
This mode can not be tested using the more usual &bmode(4) macro command as it only operates on the current buffer as which point the mode cannot be set. Instead the &nbmode(4) macro command must be used.
