Default S Note Brightness

Whenever I use S Note, the brightness always seems to go up and I can't change it, anyone know how to adjust it.?

Same here. Really annoying. For now I'm using an app called screen filter to dim the screen when using s note in the evenings. Sammy should fix this though.

Mine starts with reduced intensity, if I selected reduced intensity as a general setting. Do you use (intensity) auto-settings of any kind in the general / Touchwiz settings? Or reading mode?

That is actually a great suggestion. It does not switch to full brightness when system auto brightness is disabled.

I always disable those 'helpful' features. Just include the brightness control in your status bar, set Adapt display to off, Screen mode to "Movie", switch off Reading mode, all Smart screen features to "off" etc. (unless you prefer otherwise)

I still get a very bright screen that doesn't respond to the brightness slider. Any fix for this or are all users of S Note using it at this brightness?

I use Lux Auto Brightness (there is also a free version), to overwrite Samsung control. It allows different settings for different apps.

I think it works only if you turn off automatic brightness first and then start Snote :P

Tried the free version, bought the pad version. Works great and solves the problem.
