    This may be a dumb question considering I have experience with Notes and the S pen, but I'm going to ask anyway. How do I get the screen off memo to work ? I used to do it on my note 5 but since I haven't had a note since I had the note 7 for two days I've forgotten how to make it work.

    If you haven't changed any settings, then just pull out your S pen before touching anything else on the sleeping phone then write away.
    If you have changed any relevant settings then go into settings, advanced features, S pen, screen off memo then enable.

    Just to add. If you already wrote a note and save it with your screen still off, then decided to take another note, no need to re-insert your pen and take out again to activate it, just press the Spen button and double tap on your screen

    Also if you are in a call and need to take a note then this double tap holding the button applies too.

    This "hold the button, double tap the screen," works for all apps; phone, videos, everything.

    It opens up the notes screen.

    There are some really great YouTube videos out there with SPen tips & tricks... which is where I had learned this.

    I've watched 3 or 4 videos and I've owned 3 notes and never seen this before. It's one of the complaints I had not being able to quickly write a note while on a call. Thank you for the tips.

    On the lock screen? If you put your pen back in should go away

    I had to delete the note...

    I wrote a note... then pinned it to the Always on display a few days ago. Today I looked at my AOD and the note pin icon was there and I clicked on it. The the note came up and I could'nt get it to go back to the normal AOD. I ended up deleting the note and It did eventually go away.
