    ;)1: my cursor (when my stylus hosts over screen) sometimes "clicks" whatever it is over
    2: how do I get apps like Gmail to go onto my toolbar thing for using two spots at once. I have seen images with Gmail for split screen, but it doesn't work for me.
    3: Is there a way to make custom calender events at to a certain time, and possibly get a reminder on the notification bar
    4: besides the image cut-out thing is there a way to take screen shots?
    5: I remember there being an app that sets my volume to change with the time, is there something like that for the note 2.
    edit:6: how do I remove pages, I accidentally made an extra one

    1. Are you holding the S-pen in such a manner as to inadvertently click the button at certain times when moving the stylus around the screen? ;)

    2. The most recent update enabled split screen. Check and post your version in "about phone."

    3. There is a plethora of calendar event notification apps/widgets in Play Store. I've never relied on the stock calendar in any Android I've owned.

    4. I can't stand the stock version of getting a pic of the screen, so I use Screen Shot UX from Play store.

    5. Can't answer that one.. I'll read around. Perhaps another user here will know about time-related volume changes.

    6. Just press and hold the one(s) you don't want (depending on your launcher, are you using the stock TouchWiz?) and drag it to the trash icon.

    Number 5 - i think you're after the one that you can set up to do certain things at certain times like silence after 10pm,is that correct? I think it's called Tasker.

    2) my version is 4.1.1, I don't know if that's the best version but my phones won't update
    3) I have found a better calender app
    4)I like the hand swipe thing its pretty cool
    5) tasker is great

    My girlfriends did this out the box. Hold it loosely and tap it lightly against a hard surface (table edge worked for me) repeatedly.

    Open your split-screen bar, click "edit" at the bottom. You should be able to add GMail form here.

    If you are on Verizon you can't do it yet, hopefully after the 4.1.2 update we will.

    Go to Phone Settings => Accessibility => under Services make sure TalkBack is set to OFF.

    Also check to see if Driving Mode is on, pull down the notification area and swipe left or right to find.

    Either my phone is screwed up or that is not it cuz I created a folder on the home screen that does that too.
    TalkBack is of as well as Driving Mode and it continues to tell me "Folder is open" and "Folder is closed" when I open and close it.
    Very annoying...

    Do you have Light Flow installed? There is a known issue dating back to Nov 5th about voice notifications even when TalkBack and Driving Mode was off.

    From the Light Flow program description page: Forum | SAMSUNG Developers
