How to switch input method when composing a short message on Samsung GALAXY Note2?

Last Update Date : Apr 23. 2018

Some users are unaccustomed to use Pinyin or virtual keypad to compose or edit short message. To make messaging more convenient for these users, Samsung GALAXY NoteⅡ support handwriting-based text input. You can switch to handwriting following the steps below:

1) Tap Messaging when the phone is in standby mode.



2) Tap the Compose icon at the upper-right corner of the screen.  


3) When the new message window is opened, press and hold the icon of a tiny gear (if you switched text input method before, another icon will be placed at the same position).



4) When the dialogue window for selecting input method is open, tap the Handwriting icon.



5) Now, you can input text by “writing” words on the screen.


6) If you want to switch to keyboard, tap the icon of a tiny keyboard.
