Default [Q] menu button and back button with the s-pen on GN2.

I can't tap on the menu button and back button with the s-pen on GN2.
Is there a way to get the s-pen to take you back to the home screen ?
I read some thread (from 2011 and 2012) about "menu button" and "return button" of GN2 and I wanted to know if definitively it was impossible to use these two buttons with s-pen.
Today I'm on custom Rom Android 4.3 DN3.
For the moment I use "GMD Spen Control.apk" who is a good substitut.
Maybe There's a way to make these keys work with the s-pen
Your advice is welcome

The circuit that generates the magnetic field which allows the s pen to operate, is only behind the screen. You can use the pen button and draw a gesture commands. Drawing an up arrow is menu and a back arrow like a less than sign is back.

OK
So it's a physical impossibility.
In that case, i think "GMD Spen Control" is the best way to simulate "menu button" and "return button" for me, because without this app i can't do anything
Many thanks for quick reply and explanation

Yup for us impossible. The note 3's digitizer does extend to the menu and back keys so it will work.
