    My issue is about the pen/pointer not registering for the letter "s". If I have to use the pen to type. The letter "s" will not enter. I have to use my finger

    Man, this is such a good question that you got 215 reads with no responses! Good mystery! LOL!

    I honestly don't know what could cause just one letter to fail with your pen, but work with your finger. Hmmm...

    1) Does the letter S fail in landscape mode?
    2) Does it fail when you shrink the keyboard for one handed or mini keyboard operation?
    3) Does it fail if you "swipe" through the S with your pen?
    4) Have you tried a different keyboard?
    5) If you're using the Samsung keyboard, have you reset it in Settings?
    6) Have you tried changing the pen tip?
    7) Have you restarted your phone?

    Maybe Samsung has copyrighted the 'S' so you can't use it lol.

    The 'S' Pen can't deal with 'S'.

    It works in landscape.
    I have changed the tip
    I have turned the phone off.
    I can't see in settings how to reset the keyboard settings. Could it be hardware? Ie. The position under the screen??

    My guess is that you are using a smart cover with a magnet that turns your screen on/off when you open/close the cover.

    If this is the case, open up S Note, use a straight edge to draw straight lines.

    If you see a bulge where the "s" key is, this would explain it. See the red circled area in the attached picture.

    I drew these lines on my tablet that has a magnet case. I used a straight edge but as you can see, when I get to the area that has been affected by the magnet, the s pen curves away from that spot.

    I took the cover off and within several hours it was back to normal.

    That worked. Excellent. Much appreciated. You are a legend. Here in Aosta Italy there are no Samsung stores. So if I was to follow up on warranty I would have no chance.
    Many thanks. Cheers
