Default [Q] Remove on screen buttons

I remember that there was a way to remove on screen buttons but don't remember how. Anyone know how since we now have s-off. I purchased an app a while back that allowed you to set swipe gestures as anything you want. So I set home, back, menu, recents, and google now as 2-3 finger swipes which is better than having on screen buttons.

edit- I removed it. Only issue is icons get pushed higher on homescreen only and can't move them lower.
