Use the quick memo in the notification bar. Does the same thing. Just have to remember to save it from there.

For screen shot to automatically write on it just hold volume up and down and the edit options will show up

[/COLOR]BTW, the quick memo app puts a signature "lg quick memo" (annoying) at the bottom right of pictures. I found that this can be turned off in the settings, so if the automatic screenshot (vol dn + pwr) doesn't work this will be a reasonable work around, but I would like to be able to do it the easier way if possible.

Figured it out. It is timing sensitive. I had allowed too great a gap between the first and second press. I wonder if this can be adjusted or if a different combo or shortcut can be used/created. Thanks for your friendly replies/suggestions.

Random: Unrelated, but I can't wait for the JB update. I had been running jellytime on my inspire and feel like, regarding the LGOG, a great phone is being held back by an OS that is now two updates behind. Hoping once official JB update is out, we can start to see some custom JB roms as well. Not sure if that is how it works, but would think that it would help to have the factory/carrier rom as a point of reference would be a positive step. Too bad they are only updating to 4.1. Anybody think we'll see some 4.2 roms anytime soon? The development threads don''t seem to have a whole lot happening yet.

Thanks man. Thats the main procedure. Screenshot using quickmemo leave a 'LG Quickmemo' logo on right bottom corner. Thats why 'Volume Down' + 'Power' is the best
