I want to know if there is a shortcut in Google Docs Spreadsheets for repeating the last action, like F4 in MS Office.

I found that there was no shortcut for this on Google Forums but the post were from 2009, so I don’t know if there is now the shortcut I’m looking for.

No, I'm afraid there isn't.

By the way, you can get the list of keyboard shortcuts by using Ctrl+/.

Apparently Google decided to add the F4 functionality for Google Sheets since the OP posted this question.

I know it works for inserting/removing rows at least.

+1; just checked and it works. – Jacob Jan Tuinstra Nov 6 '14 at 18:28
Sadly, it's not there yet in Docs. – Highly Irregular Mar 18 at 0:28
I'm still getting the "There are no changes to redo." alert. I tried pressing F4 or CTRL+Y after inserting or removing a row – elunicotomas Mar 18 at 12:29
@elunicotomas I just tried right clicking on a row in Sheets and inserting a new row, then when I hit F4 it inserts another one... it does seem to work in that case :-) – Highly Irregular Mar 19 at 1:47
@HighlyIrregular yep, it's working now, maybe I did something wrong:P – elunicotomas Mar 20 at 13:36

Yes there is - cmd Y

I just discovered this, and tested it on text input, text formatting and line insertion.

That seems to be the redo command, which only lets you undo your previous undo command. – Vidar S. Ramdal Aug 11 '14 at 14:26
exactly as Vidar said – elunicotomas Aug 12 '14 at 3:09
