Save your fingers when recompiling

Here's a shortcut if you're recompiling an object several times during testing.

If you find yourself recompiling an object several times during testing and you need to change compile options each time (such as target library, decimal error handling, etc.), try using F9 to retrieve the last submitted compile. Prompt it and page down to see the request data to confirm it's got the create command as you want it and press Enter to resubmit. It saves some wear and tear on the fingers and ensures that you don't forget to set an option that you wanted to.
