Mapping the Repeat function to F4 key in OOCalc

People migrating to OOCalc after years of experince in MS Excel will notice that pressing the F4 key doesn’t give the desired result..ie it won’t repeat the previous action. Even though Ctrl+Shift+Y will do the job, they badly want the functionality to be remapped to the F4 key. Here’s how you do it.

Go to Tools->Customize and select Keyboard Shortcuts. Select the entry corresponding to the F4 key and make the necessary changes to the Category and Function entries as shown in the Figure. Now click on the Modify button and finally click OK. That’s it.

In older versions of OOCalc, (see fig above) the Keys field will be blank when you select the Edit category and the Repeat fucntion. But as soon as you click the Modify button, the Keys field will be filled with the entry F4. The rest is the same.
