    Sorry OP,

    I think since you thanked me, I helped in one way or another. The rest is unimportant.

    Maybe it escapes you out of ignorance. I just know a lot of what this amazing device dies because I took it "upon myself" to learn about it.

    Yuck, this discussion is just greasy....

    Most of us are on here because we have interest in the Note 2 and learning everything about it. I've watched almost every youtube video I can, some are very good and I have learned a lot. Seems to me if there is a "list" of S pen functions someone has discovered, it would be nice gesture to copy and paste just that list to this forum. In every platform I've tried over the years, I have learned a tremendous amount of stuff reading the forums, a lot more than user guides because most of the people on the forum are true enthusiast and discover features even the manuals don't cover. As I am seriously interested in switching to Android, the Note 2 is the device I'm really leaning to. I do read a lot of BS and Apple bashing on here that serves no useful purpose. It's worth wading thru some that sometimes to find the hidden gems, even though it does stink.

    I don't use the s pen that often but to be honest I think the note 2 is a better phone than the iphone and its made me not use my full size ipad as much as I normally do.

    I can see that, I'm thinking it can do the job of an iphone 5 and ipad mini with the right programs.

    You can do a lot of things the S Pen can do on other tablets with a basis stylus. There are a few features that set it apart. You can take a screen shot with it.... but that's nothing to get too excited about.
    The one feature I like the most is the hover feature. There are full HTML websites that have pop-out menus. For instance if you go to the full Desktop site of BestBuy.com, you can hover your S-Pen over the navigation links, and sub-menus will appear. That's something you can't do on any other tablet, with exception of the tablet version by Samsung that has the S-Pen as well.
    You can almost do it by touching the links and getting the sub-menus to appear, but it's difficult to get the next level of sub-menus to appear. They will appear shortly, then disappear. Don't have to worry about that using the S-Pen's hover feature. Other than that, the only way to see those sub-menus would be to use a laptop or computer. It feels good knowing I can get to them by using my Note 2.

    There are some videos on the phone. I am still learning all it can do. But giving insight to the phone is what the forums are about. Some people may not be tech savvy and need a little push in the right direction. That was a very snippy reply in my opinion. You could be more polite to new people. I would share with delight on what I have learned. Its called SHARING

    If everyone is supposed to just go out and find things out the hard way, through trial and error, and not ask for help, I don't see the point of forums then. Aren't people supposed to ask questions here or am I doing this wrong?

    I don't even have a Note II, but I found this excerpt from a Techrepublic article about S Pen tips & tricks.

    So, what features do you turn on? Let me go through them all so you can decide which ones you will want to keep. Almost all of these features are found in the S Pen settings by taping Menu | Settings | S Pen. In this window, you can turn on the following features:

    Open Popup Note: This will open a small window (even when you have another app open) that allows you to take notes
    S Pen keeper: Sound an alert and show popup when you walk with the device without attaching the pen
    Air View: Enables the Note II to detect the nub of the pen, even before it touches the screen you can get information to pop up (or windows to open) just by hovering the pen over the proper spot
    Quick Command: You can launch anything with a gesture
    Only took me 10 seconds to find this and copy and paste it, all without being a DB MatroxD.

    I'm wondering if the S Pen does not have copy and paste because of the DB not wanting to copy and paste....

    You are bragging, because this topic is about learning about S Pen features and you come in and say you have a list, but that's it. What's the point of doing that if you weren't willing to share this list? There's no other reason except bragging.

    On that note, I apologize for derailing the thread. I assumed there was really a list and this information would be shared as per the point of this thread, but as per above I was wrong so I won't continue to derail this further.
    This is so much win. Seriously if someone is that much of a bleep there should be consequences. Forums are as much about help as they are discussion.

    The s pen allows you to do anything that you would normally do with the screen by finger. That is the basics. Then it has all of the features that it is specifically designed to take advantage of the s-pen.

    There is much more than just drawing, screen captures and writing. So much, that someone asked me the same question once on fb and g+. The list was so long that they thought I was lying. It does amazing things! The trick is learning how to do a lot of it takes a little while. This is my second note, and it originally did a lot, but the note 2 increased the capability so much, that I am still learning and setting things after two months of use/learning.

    This was my response to the op! The db, ah, b, mf, da came in when I was "told", not asked to pour the list I made for a friend on g+and fb on here. I don't have to do that. I'm not a lazy a and I don't respond well to lazy people! That is point blank! If you don't like it, bite me!

    And yes, there should be consequences because you cyber lazies don't want to do anything. If it took you ten minutes to find it, roll on dude! You found your knowledge! If you want to check into what I have posted, just click on my name. The db's are those that have maybe posted five times or either have been on here longer than me and their topics are just trying to be lazy and not investigate.

    I'm sorry, but as I stated and have received pm's, I have shared. The op responded Thank you also, so for the rest of you, who cares?!

    Don't be a bunches of hab since I'm a db. And I don't need anyone to hold my hand while using the bathroom, so I'm not going to change anyone's diapers.

    Sharing and guiding is an interactive thing. Learning is interactive. If you cannot understand that and just want a hand out (which the op didn't btw), your barking up the wrong tree.

    I AM WILLING TO HELP ANYONE THAT WANTS TO HELP THEMSELVES AND NOT BE A PUNK/ LAZY BONES IN THE PROCESS!

    Mind you, I left this alone and you all wouldn't shut up, so you get what you get!

    My snippy reply cane from the tone that was presented earlier in the thread. I did not start out that way, though I don't have to explain myself. There is a reason the op thanked me "I would think".

    Yes, they are here to help and not gang up in someone because you don't like what they have to say, when they werent talking to you in the first place. Where in from that's called "mind your own business and stay out of others conversation".

    If it had been presented in a way other that a statement of "post it on here" to paraphrase, I probably would have done it. But to command someone to me, is far more of a way to lock up someone's information or kindness.

    This is all about exchange, but in order for exchange, there had to be a certain level of forum respect. If you don't do that with me, I'm not going to be bullied or jumped on and give information. What are you thinking? I know I'm not stupid.

    Sorry.

    Sorry to the OP, hope we can get this back on track
    I have an account on here to help and learn when the environment is conducive to do so.

    Since your the person that started this all, I will address you. If you had not said "post it here" and maybe said it in a better way, it would have taken me a few minutes to do, but I would have done it. But because of how you said it (rudely), I'm not obliged to do anything. No one is!

    I have helped and been helped, but you know, the common thing was courtesy. Your statement was not kind or inviting. Maybe in the future, you will ser that and not come at someone like that, as you set the results. It didn't get you anywhere at all. But that's on you and really no big deal to me.

    One question, who are you that I have to reach? IF YOU HAD READ MY POST, YOU WOULD HAVE SAW THAT I PLACED IT ON FACEBOOK AND GOOGLE!

    To explain (just because I feel like it at this point), the posts were not small and to be honest, that was over two months ago. So for me to be addressed rudely, and the go back and search for that brash person, have to edit it, create a picture, etc for this sane person that did not ask, but "told me" to place it here, I don't think so!

    And context clues obviously went over your head. I mentioned the list in the context of the op question and was saying that it would take A WHILE TO DO, as it took a while for me to compile for that person. The op got it, not my fault that you didn't, not my problem. I said it, once again as the op understood, that there are a lot of things.

    I addressed the question according to what was asked, not commanded. I have instruction, maybe not to your content, but I get the feeling that if it were your choice, you would magically transport my knowledge to your phone and part of your brain so that you could use it and not learn anything on your own. That is laziness.

    And yeah, once again with all the arguments back and forth, I could have posted it by now n but I'm not one to be intimidated or "talked down to" in order to do anything.

    What I'm saying is that I don't have to lie to you. I don't even know you, so the insinuation that someone had to lie is very presumptuous and rude. Further, it doesn't and will not get anywhere with most civilized and self respecting people. Maybe in the backwoods or something with a coward, but judge the results, have you gotten the list? No, so it's on you and the rest of your little lazy followers.

    I have helped the intend persons.
