    I made a handy video here demonstrating the problem...
    Please youtube:
    "S Note skipping input issue with Note 3 after lollipop update"
    because I can't post links.

    Do you reproduce the issue?
    I only noticed it after the lollipop update.

    Any ideas?
    Things I've tried:

    1. Cleared the cache partition of the phone
    2. Adjusted the skew inside the stylus to add sensitivity (made it more sensitive but no help)
    3. Played with several S Pen settings

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to Android Central.

    If you could explain the problem rather than chase a video using data someone may help. As I understand it some Scrapbook and S-Note features have changed or been lost with Lollipop.

    On the "S Note" app, and Note 3 with lollipop, it skips a lot of strokes If you write quickly.
    The stylus seems to work well with other applications.
    On the video, I show how to reproduce the issue; you have to click once like when you're dotting the "i" then draw a stroke next to it immediately like a line..
    For me it will skip the line if you do it fast enough.
    dot, line;
    Dot line,
    dot line.
    It never did it before the lolipop update.

    Can someone please test this on a note 3 and S Note and please let me know?

    Things I've done:
    1Tested with another stylus..still repro.
    2Still reproduce after clearing the system cache.
    3made pen more sensitive- no help

    Thanks In advance for any help.

    I am having this exact problem. It is SO annoying. I selected the Note 3 for the stylus. I had JUST gotten good at using S Note and then Lollipop comes along and the I can be writing the word “Samsung” for example and part of the ink just doesn’t register. ARRRGGGGHHHHHH!

    Ditto! The dot line test is a good example. After every single "i" the next letter gets missed. SO annoying! I'm looking into alternative programs it's so bad.

    I contacted Samsung with their live text support they were extremely polite but not very knowledgeable... at the end they wanted to wipe my phone clean to rerout it.. I said no way as I hadn't backed up things I then told them to log the defect with the QA and development group they didn't want to do that... this is what you get when you outsource

    Same problem on three separate devices. Tried new styluses too. I also wiped my device and started from default and that did not work. I've been looking for a solution for months.
