    Nope, it's there in mine.

    It shouldn't affect, but are you using a different launcher?

    For those using Nova it's because there are a couple stock widgets (they appear to be ones that take up a large part of the screen) that require TouchWiz Home launcher to use, like the large Calendar widget and Action Memo widget. The "tack" is an action memo widget.

    So it's Nova keeping it from having this feature? Good to know...
    I had issues with Nova on my Tab S (humongous battery drain), so I stopped using it. For my phone I'm waiting for Themer to support the Note 4. Let's see if this is gone then.

    I am also using NOVA, and my workaround is to minimize the note, that way it ends up as a bubble on my home screen, that reminds me that I have a note, and the great bonus is that it shows up on all screens.

    If you launch Air Command with the S Pen, you don't see it as an option?

    I am also using Nova Launcher. And I just discovered Action Memo is a part of S-Note. When I save a memo, it saves in S-Note. Had it always been like that? I don't think it was like that on Note 3.

    Action Memo is not integrated with S-Note, it seems. That is why we don't see it in the App Drawer. But it is there among the Air Commands of S-Pen. But when you create a Action Memo through the Air Command, it saves in S-Note.

    On Note 3, I could configure Action Memo to be launched automatically upon detaching of the S-Pen. I can't find that configuration on Note 4.

    Also, S-pen can now only take screenshots through Air Commands. On Note 3, I could take screenshots with S-pen's physical button.

    Check in settings, s pen, detachment options - mine has three options - none, action memo or air command

    Another workaround I am doing is to add the S-Note Widget to the home screen. This will show previews of latest action memo and Snote entries.

    Ok just by having nova launcher installed disable the pining feature of the s note.

    Just having nova installed and not in use kept it from working...really strange but once I uninstalled nova the feature came back.

    Touchwiz has to be the default launcher to work.

    Yes true I can confirm that. I have Next Launcher installed and the tack from 'action memo' disappeared. Even if you use touchwiz 'once' the tack doesn't return. It will only return if you make Touchwhizz your default launcher.........funny stuff

    I have run into the same problem. Even after uninstalling nova launcher, the tack for action memo is still gone from normal touchwiz. For now, the only way to have the tack back is to have touchwiz as the default launcher without uninstalling nova launcher. If I don't want nova launcher on my phone, is there a solution to the problem?

    edit: Never mind, I figured it out. You just have to set touchwiz as the default launcher again after uninstalling nova launcher.

    I have the same problem but never used any launcher. Anybody found any solution? Any idea of the packages involved on the handwriting-to-text functionality? my feeling is that the problem is on that packages. I am using android 5.1.1.

    I have a similar problem only had my Samsung note 4 for a week no launcher addons. My problem is I have no text to action feature I too saw this feature used on you tube and its not there on my phone. Its the Icon at the to left and to the right of the pen and eraser icon. I should have a circle of dots and it is designed to have 5 actions to convert a text phone number and either use it to make a call or too add this number to the contacts list. It also does the text to email and internet etc. Works on my sons note 4 fine (and he doesn't use it) but its not there on mine and I am always writing notes down (short term memory problem) any sugestions
