when using handwriting to text on the samsung keyboard of Galaxy note 3, the writing just remains and does not convert to text after click other buttons there the keyboard crashes. regular input and all other aspects of the keyboard work, even direct pen input works. i have cleared cache and data of the samsung keyboard, even factory reset my phone but the problem remains. i really freaking out!!! does anyone have a solution or is having similar problems

Same here. Guess we'll have to wait for the first update.

glad to know i'm not the only one facing this problem... meanwhile, any good keyboard with handwriting recognition to use as alternative?

also, to add some details, when i switch to Chinese language, the input does scroll to right when i am writing towards the end of screen, then when u scroll back, , or in english input try wrinte some words then press the backspace button, u will notice a character cursor stuck at the far left of the screen. Try move that cursor and your keyboard will crash again

you're right, I just changed my date to 28th sept, and it worked, thanks a lot

additional update: changing the date, use the handwriting, and change the date back to today and it seems working fine again. thanks indeed for the discovery, if TS can just update the first post with this solution it would be great

Same problem
I was very glad to get my Note 3 last Friday (one of the first in the Netherlands). But this morning, during a short demonstration for my collegues on "how great the Note 3 and Android is", I had the same problem as you. This is my first Samsung and Android device, how long does patching take?
