Default Screen shot wave motion?

Supposedly you can move your hand across the screen to take a screen shot? My motion setting is turned on, but I have yet to get that feature to work? Anyone help?

I struggled with this on the S3. Make sure that the edge of your hand glides across the glass from right to left (direction shouldnt matter) while touching the glass. By edge of your hand, imagine you were to karate chop the screen. Let us know if it works for you!

I have watched tutorials, YouTube videos, restarted the unit, turned the feature on/off...nothing gets it to work. Even tried my wife's hand versus mine thinking I was like a vampire or something...no go....anyone else have a problem with their swipe to screen capture on the SGN2?

Press & hold the home & power buttons at the same time for about 2 to 3 seconds. This will also take a screen shot.

That is so lame that they would advertise it as a feature when it clearly does not work...very unlike the rest of the phone.

You stopped after turning on motion.
  • Settings
  • Motion (On) now tap the word Motion to get to other options
  • Scroll down to Hand Motion Section - Palm swipe to capture

Yes mine does. Works every time. Can you describe how you're placing your hand when you try to do a screen shot.
It shouldn't be palm down.

I believe you have to position the side of your hand at the edge of the phone then slide your hand onto the LCD then across. The trick is to not touch the LCD, but swipe onto the LCD from the edge

well, I finally got it to work. I had to touch the screen with the edge of my hand and swipe it across the screen. Need to do a nice slow pace (about 1 second) from side to side.

Works for me here on my AT&T USA Note 2

But I must use this technique:

1 ) Hold Phone with left hand

2 ) With your right hand, hold it straight and vertical like a "karate chop" , keeping the lower edge of your right hand area between your palm and tip of little finger as straight as possible.

3) Place your right hand 1 inch to the left of the face of the Note 2

4) With a slow even uniform motion, sweep your right hand left to right across the front face of the phone. Be sure to start the sweeping motion in dead space left of the phone, and be sure when your right hand first contacts the front face glass on the left side, your hand makes broad multi contact with the entire front glass ( top to bottom )

5) within 1 second of the left to right hand sweep, you should hear a camera snap sound and the screen should blank for a second, and a message saying the screen was copied to the clipboard.

So you actually make contact with the screen? I thought it was done with a wave and detected by the motion detector?

Yes you do. Take the side of your hand and swipe it across the screen while touching the screen. Edge to edge.

Eric I've tried different degrees of pressure from light to hard and still able to capture the screen. Are you hesitating as you swipe across?

The graphics look correct. Make sure you start the swipe off screen to the right and move to the left and all the way out of the screen to the left side. Make sure the edge of you palm is in contact with the phone screen all the time. The home button and power button also works for me.

Works perfectly for me. I don't have to go slow or make sure my hand is straight or start off screen. I just swipe one side to the other and it snaps a screen shot.

I did a tutorial of this in this video:
Galaxy Note 2 Tips & Tricks (Episode 7: Different LED Flashlight Intensities, Screen Capture) - YouTube

Starting @2:20. I cover a few ways to do a screen capture and why people have a hard time doing them because it is a bit tricky to get it right.

There are a couple of ways of doing swipe screen capture. I see a problem already with the title though. There have been devices that detects wave to enable actions, but Galaxy Note 2 isn't one of them.

It isn't a wave. It is a swipe. You can also do it with a finger by swiping half the screen as long as you lay your finger down flat like you were wiping off water like a squeegee. You can also do it horizontally.

Not only does it work for me, it's one of the few gesture features that works for me every time.

There is a slight difference between swipe to screenshot and using the SPen. When you swipe across the screen, it automatically saves the screenshot as a png file in the Pictures/Screenshots folder. If you click the SPen button and hold it on the screen, it's more like a print screen function, and you have to tap the check mark to save it. You can also use the SPen to draw on the screenshot before saving. That's how ScandaLeX wrote the directions on the screen shots.

There is a slight difference between swipe to screenshot and using the SPen. When you swipe across the screen, it automatically saves the screenshot as a png file in the Pictures/Screenshots folder. If you click the SPen button and hold it on the screen, it's more like a print screen function, and you have to tap the check mark to save it. You can also use the SPen to draw on the screenshot before saving. That's how ScandaLeX wrote the directions on the screen shots.
The other option is to use a photo editor to write on the screenshot as well (if you swipe the screen).

I'll try to keep it simple. It took me a minute to figure this out. I could've read the manual but I wanted to try to figure it out on my own.
If you try to write directly on the pic it'll flip over for writing on the back. You either have to take a screen shot of a pic or use an app.

To write on the front I use Samsung's Photo Editor app.
Launch it
Click camera, take pic, click save.
Click decoration, drawing.

When finished writing click done and save.
Open your gallery. Pic is in PhotoEditor folder.

Samsung's way is to take a screen shot of the pic you want to write on. The edited pic gets save in the IMG_edited folder. I don't like Sammy's way.

If anyone else has any other way they write on pics please feel free to share.

Initially I was doing the screen shot until I realized Photo Editor can launch the camera making taking a screen shot unnecessary.

I have the SAME ISSUE! I've tried everything mentioned in the threads! Very very frustrating. If I pay this much for a phone, I would like all the features to work... I know it might not seem like a big deal but this is one of the things I liked about the phone before I purchased it. Would love a solution. I've checked all the settings and it just doesn't work.

I don't get it.

You can take a screenshot inside the photo editor app?

Worked for me. Oddly enough it seems to have cleared the "log jam" and now its easy to do. Also covering the device mutes and pauses movies. Interesting.
