    When I'd create a list (shopping list, e.g.), I'd immediately send the s note to a home page. Now when I try to do that I get an error (while in S note after choosing Menu>Set as Shortcut>OK) that there is no more room even if the home screen is empty. I am using Nova but wouldn't think that's the cause. Keep in mind, this used to work.

    EDIT: nova launcher updated their app to fix this issue

    Just checked it with touchwiz and it works just fine. Are you leaving the file names generic or changing it something shorter?

    Weird. Have you updated your phone recently or has your launcher updated. Could be broken at the moment due to incompatibilities

    I don't know exactly when Nova updated; nor do I know when shortcuts to home screen from S Pen app, quit working. I don't use it frequently. Do you know of a way to TEMPORARILY remove Nova launcher without royally screwing up nova's settings? If I revert back to touchwiz homescreens and S pen shortcuts work, then I'd email Nova. Otherwise I'm stuck in limbo.

    I don't want to spend huge amounts of time getting my Homescreens back the way they are now, once I go back to Nova Launcher. I did make a backup of Nova settings today, but I don't see how to disable Nova. I'd rather not have to uninstall it.

    Ive never used nova launcher before but I have used a few others. You can change your launcher at anytime in settings. You can quickly load touchwiz or load nova and it SHOULD be fine. First id thoroughly scour nova settings page to see if there is a way to backup all your settings, Apex has this hopefully nova does too. Check nova for sonething similiar to this option.

    Here's what you can do:
    1. Create your S Note
    2. Long press on Nova homescreen, select Widgets
    3. Select "S Note", then "S Note (page)"
    4. Select your note, then a page from your note
    5. Long press on the new widget, resize to 1x1.

    Voila! Keep in mind you're making a 4x4 widget then resizing it, so make sure you do this on a screen with enough space at first.

    Nova launcher just released an update that fixed the shortcut issue from 3rd party apps. Yeah!
