Default New S Note trick I just discovered

While viewing a multi-page document in S Note, you can long-press on the page number indicator at the bottom of the screen that looks like:

< 8 of 12 >

and up will pop a list of thumbnails showing all the pages in the document, so you can quickly scroll to the page of your choice. One tap and you leap to the desired page.

Wish I would have stumbled on this earlier, before I spent time clicking a page at a time from the first page to the last....:-/

You should document all these things you've found. They're all very useful and this illustrates the madness of releasing apps without full instructions.

It's the in-built app called S Note.

Related to this idea - here's how I use this feature in my main Note at work. I make one each month, so I might have 70+pages in one document.

Every day I create a blank page for today. At the top I write my to do list for the day using the main text tool. Then I set the pen tool to a thick red line and handwrite the current date at the bottom of the page in large letters eg Thursday February 6th. These take up bottom third of the page

Why? Now when I pull up the thumbnails as mentioned above I can actually read this date in the thumbnails. So you can flick through the thumbnails to get to the right one easily

I was looking for a telephone message pad app with no luck. Instead, I just started a notebook in S Note called Telephone Log. Now, when I listen to voice mails at the office, I just jot down the name, number and topic in this log. I cross off the calls as I handle them. I thought about erasing them with the eraser, but decided I'd rather keep the record of them.

You know, I thought I had read that someplace, but it doesn't work on my S Pen. If I press and hold the button, it begins to act as a tool for selection (to copy the selection to the clipboard for pasting elsewhere). Just pressing and releasing the button doesn't switch the tool either. I always have to tap the eraser tool in the toolbar.

Thats strange, perhaps its a different s note version.
You should be able to just hover anywhere on the screen and pust the button and it should change.

Curious. In my case, when I hover and click it opens 'idea sketch'. What's going on here? I'm in the uk and have version 4.1.1 is this one of the differences between 4.1.1. And 4.1.2?

Hi. Can you take me through the steps? In my case, I open a note, then go to the mode that allows me to write with the pen, then I hover and click and I get into something called idea sketch. If I write 'car' it downloads an image of a car that can insert into my note. Do you get that?

I have the GT-N8013, US version (WiFi only) running Jelly Bean 4.1.2. No eraser for me...too bad. It would be a nice feature because I get pretty sloppy writing.

Same behavior. I just spent about 20 minutes going through every setting for the S Pen that I could find/think of and nowhere is there an option to trigger the eraser from the button. I wonder if different versions of the Note have different pens?

Idea sketch seems to come up if you long press the s pen button.

2 things to try.

1. Double click the s pen button, like you do a mouse

2. I've found a single press cycles through presets. Delete some presets if you don't like them. Then you may find the eraser being selected

That's the trick - difference between a long press or a press & release (which does indeed cycle through the presets). You can also put your own presets in, and/or delete those that ship standard. Finally figured this all out! I took out all the presets and built 3 that i use the most - skinny black (for writing), red, a little thicker, for underlining and circling, and yellow, reduced opacity, to use as a highlighter. Nice feature, now that I've figured it out!
