I'm running TF on a Macbook Pro using VM Ware. Everything is working on TF, but I'm stymied on how to insert new waypoints. This action requires you to use the pointer and indicate a waypoint and then hit the insert key. This adds additional way points on either side of the indicated waypoint. This is very useful when adding to an existing track.

But the MacBook Pro doesn't have an insert key, and all the workarounds to simulate this function have not worked is there a way to approach this feature through a drop down menu or some other menu-driven way so that we can avoid the substantial problem of keyboard simulation (which differs for every keyboard)?

Try fn + enter. Other suggestions are fn+Home, fn+0

 :( NOPE, I've tried every combination of function keys to get the insert function to work, including hooking up a PC key board - but none of it works.Many of the other functions (if not all minus one) work, but without the insert key I'm pretty much hosed on editing existing trails.

And frankly I haven't found any decent programs out there that come close to the simplicity and grace with which TF works. Someone buy the creator a Mac so he'll be motivated to solve this issue....
