    Hey folks,

    So for starts, I purchased my galaxy tablet for use at school. I take notes, review presentations etc. I've been ignoring this really bothersome problem I've been having with writing notes with the s pen though. Near the edges of the screen the pen loses its accuracy drastically. I've seen alot of the suggestions for smacking it on a surface or adjusting the potentiometer on the pen,, so I'm wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and if those adjustments helped. If not , what does?

    Many thanks

    Some things you can try-
    Developer options
    Uncheck everything in the "Drawing" section.

    System section
    S-Pen (tap it)
    Make sure the dominant hand is correct.

    Other than these options and the fixes you posted, I don't know of anything else that may help other than a factory reset.

    Sorry the title of my post was not clear, I just solved my poblem with help from this forum. Try removing the Note from the case if you have one as magnetic catches affect the touchscreen.
