I'm use LO 4.0.22 under Ubuntu 13.04 OS.

Why redo keyboard shortcut is always greyed (disabled) ?

I'm forced to move the mouse, aiming, and then click. Doing that repeatedly is against productivity.

Why simple "Ctrl-Y" press disabled?

I find it works this way...

  • Ctrl+Shift+Y = redo the last action
  • Ctrl+Y = redo the last undo (Ctrl+Z)

Example 1:

  • Type "4" in cell A1
  • Move to cell B1
  • Press Ctrl+Shift+Y and B1 = "4"

Example 2:

  • Type "4" in cell A1
  • Enter to move to cell B1 (or however you have Calc configured to move) type "5"
  • Press Ctrl+Z and delete "5" from cell B1
  • Press Ctrl+Z and will move back to cell A1 and delete "4"
  • Press Ctrl+Y re-enters "4" in cell A1
  • Press Ctrl+Y and moves to B1 and re-enters "5"

Don't know why it works this way, just know it does.

Yep, works that way in Writer too (of course). In fact, I was unaware of the Ctrl+Shift+Y shortcut - most helpful. Thanks!
