When I switched from Linux notebook to MacBook Pro I really missed
insert key. I don’t need
insert in OS X, but it’s useful for remote work (for example on linux machine). I found on the Internet some tips like
fn + enter to emulate
insert, but nothing works. I realized I don’t need
insert in whole OS X, but only in application used for remote work. In my case it’s iterm2. So here’s quick tip how to emulate
insert in iterm2.
Go to iterm preferences
⌘ + ,. Click on
Keys and add new keyboard shortcut (plus button near load preset button). Press your desired keyboard shortcut (for example
option + F12) after that change
Send Escape Sequence and fill
[2~. After that you can emulate
insert key with your keyboard shortcut.
