Repeat edit is the F4 key in Word. You type "ing", then you move your
cursor and hit F4 and "ing" appears at the cursor position; or you
highlight a word and delet it, then you highlight another word and
press F4 and it's deleted, or you apply body style to a paragraph,
move your cursor and press F4 and body style is applied to that
paragraph... Repeat edit = repeat whatever it was that I did before.
I'll be ... well, "happy" with Frame isn't exactly the word of
choice, but ... more likely to put up with Frame and control my
language in mixed company??? ... when Frame commits to _writers_
instead of DTPers and includes even half of the outlining capabilities
