I'm using Blender 2.73 with a 3 button mouse on Windows.

In the User Preferences I've changed the mapping for Set 3D Cursor from Action Mouse to Alt Action Mouse. (Like many Blender newbies I keep accidentally left clicking.)

I can't find anywhere what the mappings are for various key and mouse combinations so I'm wondering if I'll regret this remapping in the future?

    $\begingroup$ IMHO it's easier to learn blender using the standard configuration. Most tutorials and manuals presume you are using standard keys, once you modify things you are on your own... $\endgroup$ – user1853 Mar 2 '15 at 18:20

you can search for key combinations in Preferences->input to see what it is used for

  • $\begingroup$ Thanks, I missed that about changing where it searched. What's the difference between Action Mouse, Select Mouse, and Left Mouse; is that documented somewhere? Are Action Mouse and Left Mouse the same if no preferences have been changed? Likewise for Select Mouse and Right mouse? $\endgroup$ – lumpynose Mar 2 '15 at 20:36

    $\begingroup$ @lumpynose Right and Left are obvious but you can choose one for SELECT and the other one will be ACTION $\endgroup$ – Chebhou Mar 2 '15 at 21:30
