    Hey everyone,

    im new here so be gentile with me :p.

    I have note 3, with custom rom - note 5. It works perfectly.
    But i have a quastion. It's maybe more for developers or. if anyone knows such app (i didnt found it)

    With note 5 there is a new feature. quick memo on locked screen. its really awesome, but i miss something that would come really handy;

    quick memo to text. For example; i want to take a quick note. take out pen and write. But i want this handwriting to transfer to text right away and save. Remember; with note 5, there is no need of turning on your device for a quick memo! That would be splendid :).

    Now a quastion: Is this possible to do that somehow and i dont know it? If no... did anyone heard off such app, customization or maybe knows/is a developer and would try to programm it in such way? (i belive it should work like messages. When u handwrite sms it transforms into text right away)

    After you create and save the handwritten action memo in the lock screen, you can go back to it later in S Note, press the S> symbol at bottom right, use the select tool to select the handwriting and "transform" it into text. Works very well but is long winded.

    I understand that what you suggest would be useful, but it would mean enabling the keyboard function on a locked screen. I suspect this would compromise security.

    i think it doesnt need to bring up keyboard. it could be automatic.
    Now it saves graphic in action memo. in my case it is also graphic but when i click save it automaticly transfer that graphic into text and saves it in s note. that would save me time for all that steps u described.

    short version: how to minimize the effort for saving action memo on locked screen and transfering it as text in s note
