Grabing objects

Hi,

I see plenty of people grabbing objects and I read that it was by holding the action button. I tried many and many times and it does absolutely nothing at all...

I tried with mouse/keyboard and with the xbox 360 controller. (I'm playing the PC version).

Any ideas?

Thank you!

for me it's just holding "E" aka the "use" key :)

@eezo: So you stare at the object, then press and hold the action button (use key) and then move the camera and the object moves with you? Thanks

Is there a way to do this when using a 360 controller on PC? I've tried the Use (A) button, but it doesn't seem to work. I want to stack things nicely on shelves, and put buckets on people's heads so I can steal their wares. :(

Holding A works for me using the 360 controller on pc. After you hold A for a couple seconds you can let A go and it stays held when you move, then hit the use button again to release.

Press the E button, then just hold it gently, maybe caress it...then leave it, and never look at it again.
