FS#882 - Repeat last tool button

A ‘Repeat last tool’ button would be useful.
When one has fully cancelled all operations, sometimes it would be convenient to have the option to have a repeat of the last tool again...I’m thinking that a simple button could do this a bit like the reset/idle button.

Just curios - what is the difference between clicking on a "repeat the last tool" button instead clicking on the last used tool button ...

Lets use the Line tool set as an example.

First I click on the Line tools button (step 1).
Then I select say Line from 2 points (step 2).
Then I can select a snap option (step 3..but optional!)

I then completely cancel all commands for this tool (reset).

But then I remember I want to use the 'Line from 2 Points' one more time.

Ah Ha...I can click on the new (;)) 'Repeat the last tool used' button...just 1 step used!!

I don't work anymore with the "CAD tools" toolbar - what means I save most of the time the first step ... ;-)

Interesting Husky, so do you have:

All the tools you need showing 'docked' ?
Selecting from the 'drop' down menus ?
Using keycodes ?

Pressing enter in the command line will repeat the last tool.
If the command line does not have the focus: Space, Enter


Available keyboard shortcuts
