    Insert/Overwrite
    I hope I am not being stupid but after years of toggling between Insert and Overwrite in Windows (Word, WordPerfect, you name it) I cannot find the Insert key on my (still quite new) Mac.

    Is there one?

    Doesn't exist.

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Insert/Overtype on Mac Microsoft Word
    I found a way to use "insert/overtype" in microsoft word.

    You go to
    Tools - Customize keyboard
    Look for in Categories: All Commands
    Look for in Commands: Overtype
    then go to: Press new keyboard shortcut:
    and assign a new shortcut.

    Tip: If you don't want to reassign any of Word's preset shortcut keys, here's a little hint: the key combinations CTRL+[number keypad key] are usually unassigned.

    Hope this helps
