Ah, yes. It is not wrong, but it is just incomplete to say it is for "action / shoot". The "action" button (shift when playing with the keyboard) does a whole lot depending on where and when you use it: running, climbing, hanging from ledges (and dropping to the lower one if you keep pressing down), activating elevators up or down, activating switches and machines, shooting when you unholstered your gun... and I'm sure I'm forgetting more.
Running and then holding on to a ledge after jumping comes in two varieties:
- To jump up to a ledge, start running, let go of the direction in which Conrad is running and keep pressing the "action" button. Conrad will jump up and grab on to the ledge in front of him automatically when he is close enough.
- The other is when the ledge is at the same level or below, you have to press/point up to jump while keeping the "action" button pressed all the way until Conrad grabs on to the ledge (if the jump was just long enough) instead of falling down. After that, let go of action to drop down, or press up for Conrad to pull himself up onto the ledge.
