There is an input selector icon in the status bar whenever the keyboard pops. If you click that you can easily change the input method.

This should be possible, just need someone with the knowledge and time to make one.

I am sure the S-pen SDK allows us to monitor when the s-pen is removed so we should be able to trigger an app to auto-switch keyboard at that point.

Can you PM me that file and I will take a look to see how it works, I might (if I find the time) be able to build one for the Note2 (or find someone that can)
