They heard you, Samsung has brought back the ability to hide your Navigation Bar and Swipe Gestures.

 
You will have to download Goodlock and specially NavStar once installed toggled on NavStar, Enable extra gesture settings.
 
Go to settings. Display, navigation, show more, have fun again. 
 
Ps. If you already have both apps and you are not seeing those options, Open Goodlick again scroll to NavStar, tap on the more, go to store, there will be an update waiting. For some reason it isn't showing up in updates

Google mandated the removal on all phones with circle to search. You can re-enable it with the following steps:

Galaxy store>install goodlock>open goodlock>install navstar module>open navstar> tap "enable extra gesture settings" which will restore the old navigation gestures in the settings menu. Once you've done this, settings>display>navigation bar>swipe gestures>more options

Goodlock is an official first party samsung customization app, so you aren't using some unknown 3rd party. It's a lot of steps, but Google has completely removed alternate gesture options from Android and Samsung is the only oem that offers an alternative even if it has a bunch of steps.

I've had the s24 ultra for a little while now and I miss certain features that I had on my 22 ultra. The first thing is the home, back, and screen toggle buttons. I used to use the one that had all three options but it was just lines at the bottom. Now it's just one line and two swipes on either side of the screen. 

The reason that this is a big problem is whenever I'm cropping a photo it undoes what I'm doing because it thinks I'm trying to go back. I don't like the clunkiness of having the physical buttons on my phone and I missed a little bars that I had. 

Also,

The object eraser is now horrendous it doesn't circle anything as finely as the s22 used to. I don't know if this is something I need to figure out a new method for or if it's just not as good as it used to be.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but your first issue can be solved used the Good Lock module, Navstar. 

I don't really use object eraser, so I can't comment on that one.

Thank you. I'll have to check it out. These 3 buttons add a black bar to the bottom and to me there's no point in having edge to edge display if they add that in. 1707454066205.jpg

The gesture version of the Nav bar requires you too slowly swipe in order to get to recently used apps. What a joke, using the phone is significantly worse than s22 ultra options!

Update: noticed dragging left can make it quicker than dragging up, but hard to be consistent with it.
