Default Invalid file name in s note

Hey, so far I've been unable to find anyone with a similar problem concerning s note, so hopefully this is something trivial. When I open s note and attempt to open a note it doesn't open and has a pop up that says "invalid file name". I've wiped the apps data and tried setting it up again to no avail.

Perhaps unrelated, but s health also continuously fails for me.

Another note app would be inconvenient as I take notes in class in a note 10.1 and am trying to sync those over. Worked fine in note 2, but not here.

Thanks.

I am having the exact same issue. Have tweeted Samsung Canada but no response yet.

Will post when I find solution.

Thanks.

I think it might be related to the name I have myself during the set-up. I think I may have put a name with a space and that's causing the error. I can't find where that information is stored to change our check though.

Completely returned my phone to stock and it didn't help.

Mine works great, I use that feature heavily.

It's important to remember to use the same file conventions that we use for plain text files. If you overlook that point, the result is what you're experiencing.

I can duplicate the same problem you have if I violate the conventions. Hope this helps you, it's a great feature and one major reason I chose a new Note 3.

This is the first (out of many) smartphones I've bought that's absolutely perfect. I've never had such a fast, fun, reliable and lag free phone. Great battery life of over twelve long hours during which it's rarely resting, I'm so glad I waited to pre-order this gem of a phone.

How exactly do I change the conventions? I get the error as soon as I create a note, and can't import any of the notes from Google drive that I made on my note 10.1. These notes also worked on my note2.

I adore this phone and I'll be blissful once I sort this out.

Good news. I clumsily imported some old notes in, but am still unable to create new notes. This solves the bulk of, but not all of my woes. I'd still like to use s health and do my own notes.

Default Same here

I am having the same problem with both s note and s health.

When someone figures this out I'd really like to hear about it.

Thanks

Finally found a solution! Change the date and time to a different format (ie date order and 24 hr time) and then restart and set it back... cured a bunch of crashes: S note, S Health, etc.
flailer and SkyJackpot like this.

That fixed the same S Note problem for me just now, too! I'm not sure but maybe the problem happened after I got the latest version of the operating system that was put out a few days ago?

When I went to check/set my date format I found that none of the format choices were selected, but the choices are only selectable with radio buttons. So, now that I've selected a format, there's no way to go back to having none of the formats selected. Which seems to mean that things were unhappy because there was nothing filled in for a default at all, for whatever reason. Now, all is good!
