S-pen shortcuts to replace buttons?

    I've been using this phone for a couple of weeks now, and everyday I accidentally hit the capacitive buttons on the screen probably half a dozen times. Is there a way to disable them, and use S-pen gestures instead to do the same thing?

    If you use the S-Pen to draw a < on the screen it will 'press' the back button. Drawing a ^ will do the same for the menu button. With regards to disabling the buttons, there may be an app for this...?

    Thanks. I'd seen those shortcuts in the handbook and tried them, but for some reason the first time it actually worked was after reading your post. :D

    Any shortcuts to go back to the home screen or bring up recent apps?
