These three commands – Undo, Redo and Repeat – have to be my most frequently-used commands. Not only are they terribly convenient, but they save me tons of time as I’m editing documents of all sizes.
Undo is typically the very first button most people learn to recognize on sight. There’s a good reason for that – we all make mistakes. Well, lucky for us, PowerPoint 2003 keeps track of everything we do so that in the event that we make a mistake, all it takes is the click of Undo button to set everything right. If you’re a keyboard fan, you can also press [CTRL]+Z.
And, if you click Undo one too many times, just click Redo to Undo an undo. Both the Undo and Redo buttons can be found on the Quick Access toolbar located in the upper-left portion of your window.
There is no command button for Repeat – just a shortcut key – F4. If there’s only room to remember one keyboard command, this is the one to remember. By pressing F4, PowerPoint will repeat whatever the very last command you performed was. Press [Delete]? Hit F4 and PowerPoint will delete something. Just apply Bold? Press F4 and PowerPoint will apply Bold formatting to your next selection. F4 may very well be the best thing to come along since sliced bread.
