    I totally agree with Andrewtb333, this would be a huge time-saving feature for everyone.

    For instance, changing the colour of multiple pieces of text within a paragraph (assuming this text could already have a character style applied, so changing colour can't be done with a character style hotkey).

    Current actions:
    - Select text, move mouse to swatches, change colour, move mouse to another piece text, select, move, change, move, select etc.

    With a 'Repeat last action':
    - Select text, move mouse to swatches, change colour, select another piece, press [hotkey], select, press [hotkey] etc.

    And 'Step and repeat' and 'Transform again' would become obsolete.
    I referred to Autodesk Maya earlier, which has this function under the 'g' key/

    I absolutely agree with this request!
    There are LOTS of repetitive actions done in InDesign, and this would certainly speed up my process.

    The developers should take a look at Autodesk Maya, where your last action is repeated by pressing the 'g' key. When that action is not repeatable on the current selection, it just ignores the keystroke. Should be fairly easy to implement, I'd say?
