Here is a pic of what it should look like, over the lockscreen:

It's so convenient for me because I'll write my list, put the phone on standby and back in my pocket, go to a section where I need something, pull my phone out (just like anybody would with a list), then cross off the item, and put the phone back on standby.

I didn't realize that this might not be possible with the stock lockscreen, but works perfectly with Widgetlocker. Widgetlocker has been my "go to" lockscreen for the past 2 years and haven't found a single app that is close to providing the customizations that widgetlocker does, so for those that feel this function would be worth while, I highly recommend giving Widgetlocker a spin. For me, what's great is that, I can save the settings and just re-load them on any of my future android phones.
Not a problem. Just trying to make sure the info on this handy thread is as accurate as possible for current and future Note 3 owners. On a related topic, if you have the "Action Memo on lock screen" option checked, and use the method mentioned underneath the option to open Action Memo (from the lock screen, double-tap the screen with the S pen while holding down the button on the pen), then you are able to write a note, turn off the screen, turn it back on, and have the note right there and available.

Thanks for posting that in here. I thought I'd done so already, but maybe I didn't click "submit" when I was done. Either way, it's a very handy shortcut.
