    I am trying to figure out how to properly use the S-Pen in the Calendar app. I can enter handwriting mode, then use the S-Pen but I can not keep what I write when I return to the normal calendar view. I have watched YouTube tutorials but there seems to be a button on the Calendar that my At&t version does not have. However it is present in a picture on the At&t website. I have uploaded a pic from there website and a snapshot of what my calendar looks like. I want to be able to draw on my calendar and have what I draw stay on the Calendar. When I switch back out of handwriting mode my drawing dissappears. I have 4.1.2 and completed a software update about 2 hours ago. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You.

    That button simply enables writing. If you turn it on you can write... if you turn it off you can scroll with your finger or s-pen without writing. You can toggle the written text on and off by pressing the calendar pic on the left side (upper corner.

    Ok thank you. So there is no way to be able to scroll with writing on the calendar? Because if I am in handwriting mode and I want to scroll to the next month. Me using my finger to scroll would just be used as a pen for writing. It seemed like in the YouTube tutorials there handwriting was visible on the calendar in the Calendar view mode as well as the handwriting mode. Worst case scenario would be to leave the calendar in handwriting mode and not adjust or scroll it. Correct?

    Thanks, Chris

    Also after a lot of looking online I kept finding stuff for a calendar app called S-Planner. It does not seem that my At&t calendar app is the S-Planner app. Instead just the basic calendar

    I am missing the same button. And like you, I am unable to scroll through my calendar with my handwritten notes showing. Didn't know until your post that there's a button that would allow this. Watched "support" vids on Samsung site and that button's definitely there and that's what would allow us to scroll through calendar WITH our handwritten notes/drawings/highlights. I'm also running 4.1.2 on AT&T. I really don't know why that button's missing, or if Samsung updated it where you could disable the pen somehow. Hopefully someone knows the answer out there. Will continue to search online.. but there doesn't seem to be a lot of people with this issue.

    factory reset my phone twice but still missing that button. Really helped my battery life though so it wasn't a total loss.

    Hi you are right, I am from the Philippines, my unit here is missing the one (1) botton on the upper right hand corner too... so it has nothing to do with the network who sold you the unit...Maybe the problem is within the software itself..

    hi, i think that button is the lock button for the pen..once u click it, it will lock/disable the pen so you can browse through months and will keep the page from accidental handwriting.

    Thank you guys for confirming what we had thought. The handwriting function in the Calendar app is basically useless with this missing feature. Hopefully we get it soon.

    I am also missing the button that is shown; so I guess my question is why can't we keep the handwriting that we did when in handwriting mode on the calendar? I am also missing that button. I have Verizon wireless with my Galaxy Note 2 and i have the same version software as the video. This is all to confusing.

    Guys i just spoke wit Samsung UK and this option is ONLY available for US devices
    and may be they will release update but may be. There is no guarantee for that so the problem is in your devices or company that u bought your phone.

    I don't own one yet,but checked out different stores to get a hands-on experience,and I am disappointed to learn from the vendors that such a feature ( keeping your hand-written notes in calendar view) is not possible.You only see your saved notes when you toggle on the hand-writing edit mode.This feature is a deal-breaker for me,so it looks like I have to wait.

    Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but I'm hoping that someone knowledgeable re the pen integration with the Samsung calendar app may be able to help with this...

    I'm very disappointed with what seems to me to be the limited pen integration in the built in Samsung calendar app - I hoped / expected to be able to save handwritten notes on the usual planner style daily page - 'but noooo...' :-)

    Anyone know of any app(s) that support the capability of saving handwritten notes on the daily calendar page form - hourly schedule and/or notes sections?

    I'm not really looking for _attaching_ a hand written note to a day in the calendar, although that would be a partial work around, if that's all that exists...

    So Glad you brought this question up as I as well am missing that button and have been trying to figure out the handwriting abilities in the calendar for a loooong time. I thought I would also be able to write on a calendar date and have it change/save as typed text!
