Even using F4 to repeat the last command is a time saver.
One of my favourite routines is for formatting all the cross-reference links (to pictures, diagrams, tables, etc.) in documents.

People have been known to gasp, when I've demonstrated it to them.

0. Select one link
1. Hit Ctrl+D
2. Set the font style (usually blue & underlined)
3. OK out of the Fonts window
4. While there are still unformatted links in the doc:
5.     Hit F11
5.     If it takes you to another link, hit F4, Else hit f11 again
6. Wend

What can be upwards of an hour's work, reduced to seconds (and it's even cooler if you've already got a formatted link -- select the formatted link in step 1, and step 2 becomes unnecessary).

Unfortunately, ms is on a crusade to destroy useful functionality like this, in the name of "failing to make our UI look as cool as apple's" and destroying focus, so don't be surprised if it disappears during an "update", like so many other vital-for-good-productivity functions have.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
