Have you tried using Ctrl + Y to repeat the last thing you did? I use that
keyboard shortcut in Word, Excel, and (I thought) Powerpoint. Never used F4.

I've discovered that my trusty F4 (to redo the last thing) does not work as
planned in PowerPoint. Am I surprised? No. Leave it to MS to do different

things with the same commands in different programs. However, if I change
something on a page and then page down to the next page and press F4 to do
it again, it pages down again. Now what person would want that? I don't
know. In the mean time, is there any way to get it to work the way it does
in Word and others (ignoring the page down/up)? I've checked all the help
files and such and can't find anything.

Please don't suggest I used the copy/paste formatting as this would not
accomplish, say, changing part of a line to italic bold or a different type
