    Default 'Pen Buddy' functionality not working?

    I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong (my wife has me trained this way, but that's a different story) - but in the Settings > Display, I've got Page buddy turned on, with all 4 context areas checked - but whenever I remove the S-Pen from my phone, I get no Pen Buddy menu. I haven't validated this with any of the 3 other situation-specific assists, but that's because I don't need them at this point. This has been the situation since I received my pre-order, so I don't think I borked it with Settings changes. Is anyone else having this problem? Any input is appreciated.

    when you pull the pen out does the phone vibrate and a pen show up in your notification bar?

    Yeah that is strange , it recognizes your pen is out but it if the pen doesnt show up top it means page buddy is off . try a reboot then cycle page buddy again off and on . let me know if it changes anything

    I can get a Popup note to launch, no problem. That hasn't been a problem

    However, the question on the launcher you noted above MAY very well be the answer. I'm running Nemus Launcher; installed all my regular apps first, then started working with the native pen functionality on Day 2...

    Thanks for the confirmation, DXc - I hadn't even thought of that. As long as I can get to the same functionality, I guess that will have to suffice. Hard to give up a 12 button application dock...
