[Q] Pen Window Doesn't Work Anymore

I'm using Jelly Bean's ROM, and everything seems to be working fantastic, except for Pen Window...When I click the S-Pen button and select Pen Window, the cursor doesn't change to the "draw" cursor, and I can't draw a window; simply nothing happens. I've tried using apps like the Pen Window manager to add "extra" apps to the pen window interface, but that doesn't work, and I've checked all my settings, but can't find anything about enabling/disabling Pen Window.

Any suggestions?

Mine let's me draw a window, but the applications box is empty, and upon trying to add applications through the edit menu, I get a force close error. I am however on Baja rom kit Kat build. I am new to the android development area but I am semi-proficient in Linux so I will look into this a bit more and maybe see if I can't find the cause so we may find a solution.

ok i seem to have fixed it. first off if you have pen window manager and mw manager installed. make backups in titu then uninstall them and then reboot. try reinstalling just pen window manager first without restoring data. it should then work. after that you can try to reinstall mw manager but that seemed to be the trouble spot on my note 3.

Unfortunately I'm on kit Kat so I can't recreate the problem you guys are receiving. Can you maybe take a screen shot to give me an idea of what's going on? And does multi window work for you?

I know this is a slightly old thread but if you happen to have anything disabled through Titanium Backup or via the App Manager... make sure you do not disable RakeIn 1.0. This service is required by both Pen Window and Scrap Booker. This only solves the issue where Pen Window does absolutely nothing when attempting to launch it.

This is exactly what my issue was. Good thing I don't remove the bloatware and rather just freeze it.

Thanks very much.
