Soo, changed my settings around a bit so that Shift-C is cursor-to-selected and Ctrl-S is "view all without moving cursor". After doing this I had some intermittant trouble with the view resetting with the original Shift-C action when I alt-tabbed or used my screenshot program.

I finally tracked it down today; somehow this got set instead of disabling the original command:

Keybinding view

I can't find "In-between Move" anywhere else in the key list; though that might be because search dosen't seem to work on it:

search failure

Note that the box dosen't become red like you typed something invalid in it.

Sooo ... what is this mouse action supposed to represent, anyway? I can't consistantly do it, so I'm not positive what it is, but I guess it has something to do with dragging between windows?

This is an event used internally for painting and sculpting tools, it is not useful in a keymap. It can be used when writing certain tools in Python (typically modal operators).

What this event does is give you higher resolution mouse positions in between the regular mouse move events. For most tools only the latest mouse position matters, and processing the positions in between would just be wasting time. But for some tools like painting and sculpting it's useful to known the full path that the mouse traveled to get more accurate paint strokes.

  • $\begingroup$ Interesting. Do you think that it being detectable in the keybinder constitutes a bug? The fact that search for it is broken leads me to believe that no one expected it to show up in there. $\endgroup$ – StarWeaver Dec 5 '14 at 23:04
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, you're right, it will be fixed in the next release. $\endgroup$ – brecht Dec 6 '14 at 1:36
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, cool, thanks. I still need to figure out the tracker, haven't looked at it before. $\endgroup$ – StarWeaver Dec 6 '14 at 2:09

In-between Move corresponds to blenders Event.type of value 'INBETWEEN_MOUSEMOVE'.
It occurs when you press a key at the same time your mouse is moving.
