    Oh I see what you mean, I was talking about inking with Evernote indeed. Anyway is there any other specific reasons for you to stick with inking in S-note? If it is for multi-window, you might give the browser from these Floating apps a try.

    I was actually planning on using this app:

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.bjbinc.multiwindowmanager

    But I haven't been able to get anyone to confirm for me whether Evernote actually plays nicely with it, especially with the hand-writing stuff.

    To clarify, I don't own a Note--otherwise I'd obviously test it out for myself--but am thinking about buying one, and my decision rides fairly heavily on my ability to take notes while multi-tasking.

    The sort of things I'm hoping to be able to do don't seem that extravagant: watch a video while taking notes, view a PDF and copy/paste from it while taking notes, etc. But I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out whether I'll be able to do them.

    EDIT:

    On a related note, does anyone know if, when using the multi-window feature, it's possible to take a screen capture of just ONE of the windows?

    FYI I've just tried the app on my Note phone and it works well. Evernote, Chrome and my favourite pdf viewers all had multi-window enabled and played nicely with each other. However be aware that the app description says Note 10.1 2014 is not currently compatible.

    Nice! Thanks for trying that out. Yeah, the Note 8 vs Note 10 vs Note 10 2014 thing is also a bit confusing. I'm planning on getting a Note 8, I can't imagine a reason it would be different, but who knows.

    EDIT: Whoops, did you say Note phone? In that case, it's even more encouraging: it would be extremely strange if it worked on the Note 3 and 10 but not 8

    I've had a Galaxy Note 4 for the past week, so I can finally test this part of the current OneNote client...

    ...and IT WORKS LIKE IT SHOULD HAVE IN THE FIRST PLACE! It's just like the Windows version on a Tablet PC, really. Seriously, inking in OneNote Mobile's something I've demanded since the Windows Mobile days.

    I think the only thing that's really missing is side button lasso select, but I'm just happy to have proper ink support that carries over to the Windows/Tablet PC version perfectly intact.

    Sorry, I was unclear. If you ink with the Evernote app, this is how it works. But if you use S-note integration, this is not how it works-- correct? That is, if I make an S-note and upload it to Evernote, that S-note is read-only within Evernote. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    OneNote for Android needs to include either a lasso select tool or the ability to use your finger tip as an eraser in conjunction with S-pen. Right now it is truly inconvenient to have to reach the top toolbar just to erase something.

    I'm willing to deal with the other shortcomings because I think the size and weight of the Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 is perfect for a school note taking device.

    OneNote for Android has been upgraded with a OneNote badge feature, half a circle ready to take a note at any time regardless what app you are using at the moment. A wonderful idea and feature for notorious note taker like moi. Alas, Microsoft didn't make it pen aware :-! Only keyboard. Sooo close!
