Default Air Command problem with S Pen for Galaxy Note 3

Hi Guys,

I have a very weird problem. Once i remove my S pen the air command launches normally, but when i start using the mobile while the pen is still out and then decide to launch the air command again by putting the S pen near the screen and pressing the button on the S pen, the air command does not launch anymore. I have to insert the pen back again in the mobile and remove it out again so that the air view can be launched.

Anyone faced the same issue ?

Any solution ?

Thanks,

Rakony

Welcome to AF and the Note 3 forum, Rakony Slicks!

I just tried it on my phone and mine works like you are describing you want yours to, I can get Air Command to pop up again,

I thought it might be because in Settings/ Device/ S Pen, I have pen removal option set to None. However, upon switching it to start air command and testing, it still works.

This is not something I have tried before and I was surprised that it worked, actually. I am out of ideas as to what the problem may be, too.

Maybe one of the other members will have an idea for you.

Again, though, welcome to the forums!

If you have not solved the problem I suggest that you another shot at resetting the phone to factory settings and then add the apps back one at a time, trying the S Pen stuff until it happens again. Then you will know what app if any is causing the problem.

Good Luck and when you get the problem figured out how about letting us know what the solution was.

Hi there,
I am having the same problem. Also my air gestures don't seem to work very well either. Thanks for your input.

Default resolved

Air Command makes it easy to access S Pen features from any app, anytime. You may need to turn Air Command on. From the Home screen, touch Menu Menu Key > Settings Settings Icon > Controls Controls Tab Icon > Air command Air Command Settings Icon and touch the slider Slider Off to turn Air Command on Slider On . To activate Air Command, hold the S Pen about a quarter-inch above the screen of your device, then press and hold the S Pen button. The Air Command controller will open over the area.

Hope the above resolves your issues. No factory settings required mate. Its just so easy

Do you have any software installed that uses the proximity sensor or gestures or do you have
PEN Window Manager installed?

Do you have an S View case on your phone?

For Verizon, the option to turn on air command is on the settings page, under Motion and Gestures.

For AT&T also, so probably for all N3s. Turning Air Command off turns off the pen button bringing up the menu.
