Recently while working in OpenOffice.org Writer, I found myself repeating my actions over and over again.
I knew that MS Office had a way to repeat the last action or word entered, so I went looking for what Writer has to offer.
What I found was on the Edit menu:
The third choice on the menu is the Repeat command (Ctrl + Shift + Y).
This command will repeat the last word typed or last formatting applied to text where ever you place the cursor/select text.
I couldn’t get it to repeat as many actions as the MS version of the command could but it did help with some of the more mundane work which is something I think that we can all appreciate.
