FrameMaker/Mac has at least one built-in repeat edit, and has had since 4.0:

repeat the last paragraph formatting command I did (Command-Shift-M).
It's one of many reasons (including command-key shortcut access to
both Special and Graphic menus) why I work offsite whenever possible for
conversions, graphics, and indexing, even when the final copy is done on
