Question why does swiping from left to right not take a screenshot?

on my previous S3, I used to swipe the edge of my palm from right to left to take a screenshot of my screen now I have to press the top button and something

how to get that old functionality back?

System Settings - My Device - Motion and Gestures - Palm Motion.
Turn the toggle button ON, then touch the text Palm Motion. There are extra settings within. Select "Capture Screen".

thanks a lot, I fixed it for her S4 now on my S4 Zoom in the Motions and Gestures I only have 2 options, first one is Motion and the 2nd one is Gyroscope Calibration

If I tap and hold on the Motion, I get a few options but none which are related to swiping to screen capture

any ideas?

I don't have access to Zoom, so I did some search and it seems that the feature is not available:
What’s the difference between the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S4 Zoom?

FYI: You can take a screenshot by simultaneously pressing the HOME button and the POWER button.
