    First things first, sorry for creating a new thread. Looked for topics but could not find a thread which could solve my problem.

    I bought a new Samsung Galaxy note 3 in Australia. But i have a couple of problems.

    1) Problem I have is I do not see Shortcuts under Lock Screen Settings

    Device->Lock Screen->Swipe Options-> Missing Shortcuts ...My Screen lock settings are Swipe as recommended.

    Also not able to load more than 2 apps on multi window option.

    Any help in resolving the above problems would be much appreciated

    I hear that the Australian and German stock unbranded roms may have the option disabled. I remembered reading about something similar with the s4 Australian version. Not sure if it was carrier or region specific. Carriers can remove almost any options they want.

    Try to switch to pin. Then reboot phone. Switch back to swipe after reboot.

    You can try clearing cache from recovery also.

    Try and install quickshortcutmaker to retrieve lockscreen. Verizon had removed blocking mode from my note 2 and this app found it and I was able to create a shortcut.

    Canadian phones have the same problem - my Rogers Note 3 is missing the shortcut option, and I'm so used to it from my Note 2 days....
