    Hi,

    Just installed the new Apple keyboard, and installed the new keyboard software on my OSX. Now, in Parallels VM, the <INSERT> key does not work anymore. On the apple keyboard, the key is labeled "fn".

    Hello, Patrick!

    Please try the following keystroke: "Fn"+"Enter"

    Best regards,
    John

    Thank you John, but this gives a 'regular' enter. No insert.

    Step one.
    In quite many guest OS, ctrl-v looks the best alternative.
    Or depending on the OS of your VM, you might more or less easily map the F13 key (just above the Fn key) to the PC Insert key.

    Step two.
    Now that Apple delivers new keyboards with this significant difference, Parallels will probably come up with some special way to remap some other keycap to the Insert scan code of a PC keyboard.
