Is there anyway to lift the sd card limitations without rooting???

I know if you root you can change some lines in a permissions file to solve the issue, but I cant root my device due to several reasons.

If there is no way to do this has anyone got any idea if Samsung plan to fix this issue or is it something Google wont let them do???

Why, do you have 4.4 on your Note 10.1 2014?
It's to do with app permissions, you can use the stock file explorer to write to the sd cad and if rooted there's no problems.... Apparently ES File Manager has been updated to do this too but I can't say as my Note 3 never had the sd write bug due to it being rooted...
