    I just noticed S Note auto updated. After updating, I got a message stating S Note does not support action memos and if I want those Notes converted.

    Yeah, the youtube video I watched mentioned that you shouldn't accept the latest update for that very reason. Sneaky devils. Mine still works since I didn't update...take that Sammy! :p

    Smart move! I wasn't quite as aware. So it's too late for me. That's why I posted to help others avoid my mistake.

    You can't clear cache and data and uninstall and start over? That won't work? The HORROR!

    I thought I read somewhere that if you uninstall and reinstall after the update, that it will work. Don't know for sure though...

    Trying it now. I uninstalled S Notes and am rebooting the phone. I can't find a way to roll back the Samsung Notes update, but I'll reinstall S Notes and see what happens.

    EDIT:

    Guess what? I have S Notes back! With Link to Action!

    Go to Settings --> Apps and delete S Notes.
    Reboot.
    Go into your downloads or wherever you have the apks.
    Install S Note
    Install S Note Extension Pack
    Install S Note Single Widget.

    Boom. Done. It will prompt you for an update.

    NO!

    Yep, thought I lost it again for a moment. Why, oh why Samsung did you go to Samsung Notes and leave S Note? You almost ruined the experience.

    System update is different than S Note Update.

    I was going to get a Note 8. Saw Samsung notes and downloaded to my Note 5. Can't believe the amount of suck. If this is the future of the Note line, Samsung just lost a loyal customer.(Since the note 3). The Note line used to be the best of the best. Now it's an S8 with a stylus. And for $1,000? Keep it. For that much, I'll buy an Iphone 8 plus. Damn. Never thought I'd hear myself say that.

    @ShelW Welcome to Android Forums, BTW

    Are you talking about S Note? Because I went into S Note, called up a written memo with phone number and hovered my S Pen over it... nothing happened. If I press the button, the S Pen menu comes up - so I'm not sure what you're talking about...

    ShelW is trying to tell us how to use the spen like it was used on the Note7. The little dot that you can see whenever you hover the spen over anything tries to identify whether it is a phone number or an email address and open the appropriate app. It's why Samsung thought we didn't need action memo any more. They thought wrong. ShelW, there is still very much a reason to need and want action memo. Sometimes you want to jot down a phone number as someone is giving it to you and then quickly add it to your CONTACTS. You can't do that efficiently with the new spen options. You can with action memo.

    I'm not even seeing a dot, other than the pointer. There is nothing on my screen to indicate that the Note 8 is attempting to interpret the memo as a number or address and give me the option to act on it. Is this a setting I have to turn on or something?

    The method described by @ShelW is for Samsung Notes (not S Note). The note has to be saved first though for this method to work. If it recognizes a contact field, it will be highlighted on the note. Just hover the pen over the highlight and it will present a small icon on the upper right corner of the written highlighted note. So far, this only seems to detect email addresses and phone numbers. It cannot detect physical addresses from what I tested. And if you have multiple apps for email (no default), it'll ask which one to use.

    Interestingly enough, if you save a Samsung Note, you can also then go into the option field and can now send it to reminder. I used to use that one the most in action memo's. It definitely isn't Link to Action but (barely) functions.

    Maybe I write really badly, but I took a note with a phone number (fairly legible), and when I reopened the note only part of the number was highlighted and there were no options for it. Probably because it was not a complete number...

    Make sure the phone number or email address is all on 1 line. If you break it into multiple lines, it won't recognize it.
