How do I use the Smart Select feature of the Samsung Galaxy Note 4?
Smart Select is one of the functions available for use with Air Command.
Air Command allows you to quickly access various functions and features of the Galaxy Note 4 by briefly pressing the S Pen while holding your S Pen button while holding your S Pen a few millimetres above the screen.
Overview of Air Command
After pressing the S Pen button, you will see a list of four available pen features.
- Action Memo
- Smart Select
- Image clip
- Screen write
Note that later models may have different and additional S Pen features.
Action Memo allows you to write a memo quickly and link an action to it. Smart Select helps you collect content quickly. Image clip enables you to draw around an area of the screen you want to share or save. Screen Write helps you to capture, edit and write memos on screenshots and then share them.
Capturing an image via Smart Select
Sharing captured content
You can either share simply by pressing the share icon at the top of the screen, or you can share multiple images by collecting them via the Collect icon and then dragging and dropping them into your message.
To share multiple images via the Collect icon:
Saving and deleting captured content
You can save captured content by choosing the Save to Scrapbook icon. If you are not on the Smart Select options screen, you can open it by tapping the floating icon.
To delete captured content, tap and hold the floating icon and drag to the Delete icon.
What to do if pressing the S Pen doesn't activate Air Command
If Air Command doesn't appear when you press the S Pen button (and your S Pen is within range of your device), then it's most likely because Air Command is switched off in your settings.
You can also make Air Command activate automatically whenever you remove the S Pen from the slot by going to:
Apps > Settings > S Pen > Detachment options then select Air Command
