RDC for Mac - how to do insert Key to go into insert mode

I am running Lion MAC OS X 10.7.2 and use the Microsoft Remote Desktop Connection Client for Mac version 2.1.1(110309).   When I am in the remote desktop session I am not able to go into an insert mode.  My MacBookPro obviously doesn't have an insert key and all key combination I found on several user forums don't seem to work for me.  I tried FN + return  or Fn + RghtCommand + delete but neither one worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Hello, Erika,

This question belongs in the Office for Mac forum.... Note the dropdown menus


1)  Try pressing your insert key to toggle this feature

2)  Try Apple + ctrl + i

3)  Turn on or off Overtype (OVR) mode


Hope this helps!
