    On my Note 9, when I would write a screen off note with the Spen, it would toggle a notification, which I'd see the next time I turned the screen on. My Note 20 Ultra is not doing that and I can't seem to find a way to turn it on.

    I was also able to switch the color of the writing on the screen off note on my N9, but can't find a way to do that on the N20 Ultra either. Any way to do that?

    Thanks

    I never tried the notification, so I'm not sure. I just got my N20U and just tried screen off.

    The color change is on the upper left hand corner when you pull the spen. It saves the color as well.

    Unfortunately there seems to be a bug in the latest version of Samsung Notes. This notification stopped working on my Note 10+ after the latest Samsung Notes update. Also the notification doesn't work on my Note 20 Ultra.

    I just went into "Settings">"Apps">"Samsung Notes" and enabled "Notifications" BUT it looks like "Screen Off Memo" is grayed out so it can't be selected as a choice (even though it appears to be on) - I came back out and refreshed everything, did a test screen note and, you guessed it, no notification still??? Sorry, it was worth a shot! Typical Android cryptic weirdness!

    Same. Thanks for the above suggestions, but I'd already found and set those things. I'm still not getting the notifications. I guess it's as bbgpsuser says, the application is just broken. I have to say that between the lack of a notification LED and now this, it's tempting to go back to my Note 9. Pretty disappointing when they can't get stuff like this right.

    Yes, I know about AOD, etc. It's just not the same.

    Yep, I just went back in and specifically selected (General Notifications was already "ON") "Screen Off Memo" On, then for that, selected "Screen Pop-up" On, selected "Sound" on, selected "Ignore DND" and saved! Tried a Screen Off Memo and NOTHING!!! I reset everything back to off... not sure what is the problem, but OP is right!

    Its probably a bug , I tried uninstalling the update to the notes app but still same results.

    There was an update on Samsung Notes yesterday. Description said it fixed some bugs, so I was hopeful. But the subject bug persists even after the update. Disappointing.
