Pointers for PC guy using Cubase on a Mac

I have a session this weekend in a studio that uses a Mac. It has Cubase 7.5 last update installed. I have done this a few times before, and I often run into issues having to do with key commands and editing. I am not sure (without having a mac) what corresponds to ctrl and alt, and there is some issue with the first few F commands - it seems they are by default a Mac command which can’t be used for an application command. which is odd, since the default transport command is F2 even for the Mac version.

Anyhow, thanks in advance for any help offered.

ctrl=cmd, alt=option.

For the F keys go into the keyboard control panel and set it to use F keys as standard function keys. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204436

Thanks. That actually helped a lot!
