Hi.

This is my 1st ever Note phone I've owned so please be gentle. ;)

When I pull out the S-Pen and make a note when the phone is asleep and then save it to my Notes Stock App will that note always save in my handwriting style or can it be converted to the fonts the phone uses when making a note using the keypad ?

I believe it will be in your handwriting. I don't think it converts to txt.

I handwritten note will save in the style of your handwriting, but you can go back thru the Samsung Notes app and, by editing the note, select your writing with the smart select tool and you may have an option to extract your writing as text. It works for me... I usually print my notes but I just tried it with cursive writing and it was still able to extract to standard text.

If you open the note, select edit, then hold the pen on any word you wrote, the whole area will be selected and a menu opens with options. Select the Extract Text and that will open another window that gives you additional option, one of which is to choose "paste to note." That will keep the written text but also pastes it on the note as typed text. Sometimes, depending on your handwriting, some words may be skipped, but you can compare that to the written section and correct the typed version if needed. Then just erase the handwritten note and move your new text field where you want it.

Exactly the answer I was looking for.

Thank you for sharing.
