Hey so while fiddling around with my Note 2 today I discovered a new feature that I have never seen in any videos or in any thread so I figured I must not be the only one who didn't know.

This is an alternative to the current back and menu gestures which are shaped like this < and ^.

1) Go back gesture: On the bottom right side of the screen flush to the edge, simply swipe down while holding the S-Pen button, this will trigger the back button soft key.

2) Menu gesture: Similarly, just swipe with the S-Pen pressed on the bottom left side of the screen.

Although this is ultimately the same as the other gestures, I find this one MUCH easier to get used to rather than the awkward backwards arrow. Hope you enjoy this tip

What ROM are you using? Also, I posted a short video at the top to show you exactly where to do it. Good luck.

Wow, actually it does work.
Great tip, thank you!
Much easier indeed compared with the arrows.

For those who can't find the trick. The line should be around one quarter of the screen height and should be finished on the bottom on the screen.

Even works from the middle for me, as long as you're in the lower half of the screen when starting. But quarter works fine as well

Sure it is stated in the S-Pen tutorial if you first start your Note 2... Without those gestures the S-Pen would be useless with gloves

If you want better gesture control: GMD SPen Control *root*

I configured the same "<" and " ^ " gesture, together with my own gestures like "V" for home and some other gestures to switch between open apps and going back and forth in the browser...
