    Default Handwriting recognition on Jelly Bean

    Hello, this is my first post, been reading alot of posts in here!

    I have this small problem when it comes to the handrwriting recognition after i upgraded to jelly bean two days ago.

    After the upgrade the handwriting recognition is problematic, it sort of seems that the time it takes to write something before it being converted into plain text is way too short. I can't even finish a word now before it transforms the letters already written. It gets a bit irritating when you try to write longer texts. For instance if i try to write "Hello" i only have time to write "He" before it transforms the letters.
    On ICS it worked perfectly, and i am regretting doing the upgrade. Is this a bug? Might there come an update after the launch of JB is finished (i have no clue on the update procedures of bugs)?
    Or is there any way of increasing the time between conversions?

    Thank you in advance for any replies.

    I don't think many people have Jelly Bean yet on the forum. I was actually looking last night to see how to Flash the German 4.1.1 to my Note and saw the Sammobile site on how to do it. I was worried about maybe having a problem or a bug such as you are mentioning, so decided to hold off for now. I'm hoping that we in the States get the Update soon, as I'm getting impatient as a lot of the people here are. I hope someone can answer your question. I'm going to have to be patient with the wait, like everyone else.

    Sorry I dont have this issue. Follow these steps and it might fix it for you. First go to keyboard settings like so.

    Then tap handwriting and it brings you here. Then change the mode to complete. I prefer it.

    By the way, there are no bugs. I am on german 4.1.2 and its so worth it. Let me know if this works.

    I have the 8013 running the 8000 german 4.1.2 rom. Not too many issues from what I can tell. Worth the upgrade.

    I recently upgraded my Tab2 7.0 to Jellybean 4.1.1 and have lost the handwriting feature. Can't even find the options for it in the setting. Please help.

    I am using a Galaxy Note 10.1. The handwriting recognition is excellent but I cannot find any way to teach new words to the dictionary. The usual Settings/Language and input/..../Predictive Text/ User Dictionary option has been removed by Samsung and the personalisation options only allow learn from facebook or gmail or twitter etc. Anyone found a way to deal with this and add user specific words?
