I am running Studio on my Mac in Parallels, which is running smoothly so far (fingers crossed) but I have not been able to find the Mac equivalent of the "Copy source to target command" Ctr+Ins. Does anyone know how to do this on a Mac keyboard? TIA

alt-fn-M or remapkeys Sep 5, 2015

The Insert key is apparently represented by fn-M (unless you have a numeric keypad, in which case you can use fn-0 with the zero key on there, but not the one above the letters) - so holding down alt, then fn, then pressing M may give you the intended result.

It doesn't always work, apparently, so you may find a better longterm solution is to use a different key for it: there is a free download from Microsoft called 'remapkeys' which lets you do this.
