"Repeat" in Writer

.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Using Writer here's what I want to do;

Insert a horizontal ruler line....

Then....rather than having to repeat the same command by selecting
Insert- Horizontal Ruler- Plain

I want to just click a "repeat-the-last-action" button and repeat what I
just did (insert a ruler line).  A keyboard short-cut would be nice.

I've tried the Repeat command in Writer (shift-Y or ctrl-shift-Y) but
that doesn't accomplish what I want.

Any ideas?

It seems you are correct about Crtl-Y not working.

What about this as a work-around?

Insert the ruler; then copy it. Then Ctrl-V will paste it in again.

You're correct.  I did that and it worked.

Try [-][-][-][Enter] - that is three minuses followed by the Enter key. For a
double line it is [=][=][=][Enter].
