    If it's annotation that you're after try using the Insert-Free Draw feature in Hancom.

    You have to install the free apps that came as part of the promotional items manually.

    Thanks Muzzy but is there a faster way to bring up the word box? I just want to add text ontop of pptx slides easily and quickly this whole fumbling around with insert>wordbox>horizontal or vertical is way too slow to use in class.

    One more issue is that when i use the pen to copy an image from the screen hnote is not an optoin for me to paste the image into......

    To clarify, are you talking about taking notes on top of slides or are you looking to make annotations on documents you are collaborating on with others? I'm not quite sure what you're looking to do and perhaps there is a better workflow for you.

    I think I know what you mean. You want to add handwritten notes/diagrams to already existing documents?

    If so, when you pull out the stylus, you'll see the "air command" menu pop up, usually at the bottom right of the screen. If it doesn't, press the button on the S pen while hovering close to the screen and the menu will appear.

    There is an option there called "Screen Write". Tap on that with your stylus and you can make handwritten notes on all sorts of documents.

    You can do it that way but the problem is that each time you screen write you are creating a separate image file in gallery.

    As an alternative might I suggest saving the powerpoint (or any other document you want to annotate) as a pdf first and then doing annotations in a pdf reader. There are many alternatives but one I like is qPDF. At least this way all of your notes are in one document.

    Another workflow alternative is to screen grab slides and paste into your note taking application of choice...or convert slideshow to pdf and import that into Papyrus or lecturenotes. ...

    Many ways to skin a cat...

    Qpdf is way to involved I dont know how to code and I dont want to "build" the app and download like 10 things.
    Is there an easy program that will just print whatever doc to pdf and export as such? I dont want to use websites and cloud services as they are too slow.

    Not sure what you mean about building or coding. I'm talking about this application:

    Bought the app not sure why it can't even view pptx or any other docs other than PDF. I am looking for an easy app that converts other formats TO pdf.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding. QPDF is a PDF reader and the intent of a PDF reader is not to convert proprietary formats to PDF. My recommendation for it was for annotating the PDF after it has been converted. It was my anticipation that you would have already had Hancom's powerpoint program, HShow, installed and we're able to open and save the pptx as a PDF.

    For clarity, the workflow would be:

    1. Launch HShow.
    2. Open the powerpoint file.
    3. Go to the File menu on the upper left corner and select Save As PDF.
    4. Save the PDF file in a location that you can find it.
    5. Exit out of HShow and launch your PDF reader program (like qPDF Notes).
    6. Open the PDF you just saved.
    7. Make your annotations/notes and save the file.

    7. Make your annotations/notes and save the file.

    There's multiple worflows to do not taking so this isn't the only way. For example one could potentially import the PDF into a note taking application like Papyrus (I think you need a program called PDF view installed to do it) and then annotate on top of that.

    If the powerpoint isn't too lengthy one could even flip through taking screenshots of each slide and then import each screenshot image into an S-notes notebook.

    Part of the challenge (and fun) is finding a workflow that works for you.
