Almost impossible to draw period using s pen

I got the S23 Ultra.

I like the S Pen to text feature where you can draw in a text field, and it´s directly converted to text. You can use this instead of the keyboard, and it also works in Samsung Notes.

However, I find it very difficult o draw a period in an internet adress or at the end of a sentence.

If I draw "bing." in the address bar, I got a period after "bing". But if you draw "bing" and then wait for a half second before trying to add a period, I'll find it almost impossible. If I try it ten times I might only get a period twice. Instead, I get another character or the cut/paste toolbar shows up. I have tried pressing soft/hard, making a smal/large dot, hold long/short, making a very small 'o', drawing the dot in the middle or at the bottom of the text field.

This is the adress bar in the Samsung browser:

This is the Samsung Notes app with S Pen to text turned on.

This is the toolbar you see when you tap in a text field:

They really should add a period button to the writing toolbar.

 

Do you have the S22U or S23U? Could you please please tell me how to draw a period or confirm this problem?

1. Turn S Pen-to-text feature on in the phone Settings. You can find it under 'Advanced features'.

2. Open an app containing a text field, such as Samsung Internet.

3. Draw a word in the text field.

4. Wait for half a second until the blue text from the pen disappears.

5. Try to draw a period "."

What is your success rate out of ten tries?

 

Thank you so much!

I just put the periods at the same time I'm writing the words I don't wait this works fine for me

I understand sirjohneleth,

Maybe I can get used to it. But I now often find myself in a situation where I waited too long before putting a period, and I can't find out how to make one afterwards.

BaronDigo and Joeeye,

Thank you for your reply.

 

But are you writing 'word.'

or

'word' (waiting 2 seconds) 'period'

?

 

What is your success rate? Please try inserting 10 periods using the S Pen. How many of your attempts resulted in a period? Do it like this:

'period' (wait 2 seconds) 'period' (wait 2 seconds) 'period' (wait 2 seconds) ...

 

And do you have S23 Ultra?
