    Repeat Last Action?

      I'm fairly new to FM9 and am wondering if this feature exists already (and I just don't know about it). Coming from MS Word, it has a great "repeat last action" function hooked up to the F4 key. As I've been selecting text in FM and applying a character tag over & over again, I began to wonder if there was a faster way. I used to use the pod to begin with, but now have resorted to just right-clicking to navigate to the character tags. A "repeat last action" would be great in this case.

          Not quite, but useful for your request:

           

          * Tap and release these keys in sequence:

           

          - Escape c c (lowercase c) repeat last font command

           

          - Escape j j (lowercase j) repeat last paragraph command

           

          Searching Google for "framemaker repeat last paragraph format shortcut" without quotes finds this:

            Jeff,

             

            FM doesn't have a general repeat last action command, however, you can repeat specific commands.

             

            esc j j = repeat last paragraph related command

            esc c c = repeat last font-related (i.e. character tag) command

            esc e e = repeat last element command
