Have had my note for about 2 weeks now, loving it. Am now starting to use the S pen for most things including writing text messages, but one thing is confusing me. Most times when I go to write, the input area appears at the bottom of the screen and takes up about 1 third of the screen and is "1 line at a time", but occasionally, for no reason I can spot, the input area becomes full screen and I can write multiple lines of text. It is quite strange because I have written 2 texts pretty much one straight after the other and the first went into "full screen" handwriting mode, the second went into the more frequent "1/3 screen, 1 line at a time mode." I quite like the full screen option, could someone tell me how to toggle or set this option so it is the default?

Hi. I'm asking the same question as you. Did you find a way of making full screen the default? I got rif of my note 4 because of the "pillar box" writing area. I saw a video on youtube of someone with a note 1 writing on the whole screen, and the words forming a line one after the other. I also didn't like the "lasso" tool when you circle your writing and then convert. Did you find a way?

I am using A6+ and a friend of mine told me that with Note 4 I can easily write an essay. Is it true ?
