On a PC, I would use the Insert key. How do I achieve this on a Mac, which doesn't have that key?

Mac actually does have an insert equivalent if you press Fn (function) and Enter\return together, this is the equivalent of insert on a mac and should enable overtype mode.

    The answer above (use fn + return) does not work - running MacOS 10.14.2 and Google Docs in Chrome – Thomas Alex Feb 8 '19 at 4:52

On an old mechanical Apple keyboard, the "help" button above "del" did it for me!
