Hi @The_Kangaroo.

 

I've added a request for this feature for the Tab S4 to the one we've got going for the Tab S3. (Thanks for getting back to me with a clarification in the other thread too ). Me or one of the other Mods will let you know of any updates on it.

Hi all, 

 

We have just had word back from our colleagues at HQ. It appears this is a concept design, and unfortunately, there are currently no plans to implement this suggestion at the moment.

 

They have taken this feedback on board, however, and appreciate all feedback sent through.

Hi Everyone! Exciting news!!! I just now got a notification on my Tab S4 saying a keyboard firmware update was available. Low and behold, this issue is now fixed!!!!

It popped up as a notification in the lower part of the screen, strangely enough (not an Android notification).

This comes a week after i got the Android Pie update as well.

Mine is also now fixed.

When I initially downloaded the keyboard firmware update that didn't fix it.

Then I got an update to the tablet software and that has now resoled the issue......FINALLY!

 

I think you will need to wait for both (keyboard and tablet) software updates but hopefully it will be fixed soon for you too.

 

I will say that Samsung has been absolutely hopeless at acknowledging this major flaw in the first place and what  rubbish communication from them that even though there is a fix available they can't even communicate to people on this forum how/when it will fix.

thanks man. Im looking foward towards it. I do alot of drawing in my notetaking. After all, it is easier to type words and draw images.

I'd like to know how to do this please, so an answer that actually tells you how would be great, as at this point it is not "solved" at all!!!
