Commands created  with `insert-kbd-macro` are NOT getting repeated. Can this limitation be lifted?


For example, down below `my-cmd-a' and `my-cmd-b' are kbd macro commands bound to `<f12> a' and `<f12> b' respectively. 

With `repeat-mode' ON, I would expect that `a' and `b' keys to be repeatable . 

That is I am expecting that

<f12> a a

<f12> a b

will move the cursor and NOT modify the buffer.

Can `repeat-mode' be enhanced to make `a' and `b' keys repeatable.

Sometimes I do complex edits, and it is fairly common in my case to alternate between MANY kbd macro commands to quickly "fixup" things that I am editing.  F


WIW, the text files that I edit are txt files created with pdftotext, and the PDF files are usually books, or handouts which I want to read in epub format. 

So, I have multiple kbd macros in my init file that remove headers, and footers, removes indentation, changes bullets, remove hyphenation, linearize columnar text etc. It would be convenient if these kbd macro commands are repeatable.



(defalias 'my-cmd-a
  (kmacro "C-f C-f"))

(defalias 'my-cmd-b
  (kmacro "C-b C-b"))

(define-prefix-command 'my-kmacro-keymap)

(define-key my-kmacro-keymap (kbd "a") #'my-cmd-a)
(define-key my-kmacro-keymap (kbd "b") #'my-cmd-b)

(put 'my-cmd-a 'repeat-map 'my-kmacro-keymap)
(put 'my-cmd-b 'repeat-map 'my-kmacro-keymap)

(global-set-key (kbd "<f12>")
        my-kmacro-keymap)

(repeat-mode -1)
(repeat-mode +1)
