2). Windows 7.

How to reproduce the bug
1. Open LibreOffice Draw.
2. Go tools ---> customise ---> keyboard ---> category: choose edit - function: choose repeat - keys: choose Alt-A (for example)
3. Create 1 object.
4. Use shortcut "ALT-A" for repeating. You won't have any repeating and in other cases.
Also i want to say that when i opened Draw with english user interface and did't find my selected combinations of shortcuts.
What is the "Repeat" supposed to do?
Repeats last command.
Can you give me an example on how to use it? Some simple steps.
1. Open LibreOffice Draw.
2. Go tools ---> customise ---> keyboard ---> category: choose edit - function: choose repeat - keys: choose "Alt-A" (or any other combination).
3. Create an ellipse.
4. Press "Alt-A" to repeat last command. LibreOffice have to create second ellipse.
You really don't use this method to speed up your productivity ? Please, google it.

The repeat command only repeats a limited set of instructions.
Bug 96228 is to collect issues around this - actions that should be repeated. Not sure if inserting an object should be one..

I think the customization is language dependent..
I would suggest NotABug since it works as expected?
I tried numerous variations of using this shortcut for different purposes like:
1). inserting an object
2). repeated applying the style for objects
Please pay attention ! This shortcut is working very well in other applications - Writer and Calc. I can apply the same style to many sets of objects such as strings, words, paragraphs, cells in one-action. I don't really understand - for which purpose this function is working in Draw ? Can you give to me some examples ?
In Writer you can print a character (for example "A", "B") and repeat this action by using shortcut "Repeat". I think this are equal actions: creating of character like "A" and graphic object like "ellipse".
Even Writer allows not every action to be repeated. In particular, you cannot create multiple shapes/charts, move floating objects by or to a certain position, duplicate line breaks... What works is to set properties of the paragraph style and tables.
Assuming the repetition for shapes cannot be accomplished (it would be relevant for Writer too), what else makes sense in case of Draw?
Do you know the Edit > Duplicate function (Shift+F3)?
Yes, i know about this fucntion. I repeat my question.
For which purpose this function is working in Draw ? Can you give to me some practical examples ?

What do you expect?`

Tendentially we should consider to remove the repeat function completely from Draw and Impress.
