    Hey all,

    Sometimes I'll wanna screen wrote on a text message with a grocery list.... So I cna cross stuff off as I go.

    Unfortunately, if I go to another app, the screen writing is discarded. Is there a other app that would keep it open?

    If I save it first, it isn't stored in notes... Just as an image.

    Thanks!

    Do you mean using the screen off memo to write on? If so, you can save that in S Notes, or open S Notes and write on there. Can highlight, cross out, etc

    You can do a screen write or note and use the pin it function. It will go on your home screen as a viewable note.

    Mine doesn't have a Pin it option. Tested both screen off memo and while screen is on.

    What's really weird is I swore I had pin as an option while using the off-screen memo during the creation of it and also in the regular S Notes area. However now I don't have that option even after saving it. I have the factory unlocked version I don't know if that has anything to do with it? I've had this phone for a month

    I apologize for the typo in the title, it won't let me edit it anymore. I meant to say screen write.

    When I take out my pen, there's an option for screen write. When you click that it takes a screenshot of the current screen and let you write on it. It doesn't treat it as a note because you can't pin it, and when you save that, it goes right into your screenshots - not notes gallery.

    It seems that my only alternative it is to start a new note and insert the screenshot of what I want to write on then it will be treated as a note. That just seems like a lot of extra steps.

    After it's saved it gives you an option I think it's the top right-hand corner

    I don't time to play around with it right now as I'm getting ready to head out. But I know it did work because I've done some a couple of weeks ago. Maybe an update took it away I don't know

    I'll figure it out eventually. It's not a big deal to me just a wondering kind of thing.

    Silly me. I didn't have AOD set to on. Once I did that, the Pin option was available.

    Would be nice to pin an S Note ot the home screen though, not just AOD screen. Mine only provides the option to pin to AOD.

    Maybe try Google Keep notes. You can copy and paste your text and then add returns to create check off lists.
    You can share and collaborate. I just got it, so I'm not sure of all the features.

    I don't think you can pin it, but add it to your edge panel.

    On this topic - if you want a "shopping list" on you AOD. The reminder app lets you make a list of 19 items - save - then Pin to AOD. Then at the store - pull out pen - double tap the the pin icon - double tap the note. It will open in the reminder app - press 3dots - edit - then tap the square to cross off. press Save - it will ask to refresh - press refresh - and shut off screen. The adjusted list will now be the new Shopping list on the AOD. Also it looks like if put a screen shot or an older screen off memo from the Samsung Notes into the reminder app you can then pin it to the AOD. That is the only way to get the Samsung notes on to the AOD, unless you just created it on the Screen off Memo. I love the reminder app. I also discovered that the reminder app will pin to the AOD in larger font than the Samsung Notes does. Don't know why. Hope that helps anyone!
