Experiencing some issues with the Samsung notes app feature selection mode. Previously, it would only select and object that I encircle fully in its dotted lines. However, it now selects any object the line touches.
I have not changed the settings in any way, is there some way to make it so that the selection mode only selects object that I encircle? If not how do I restore the app to its default settings?

I'm facing the exact same issue with Rectangle selection mode. This is especially annoying when I'm trying to select only the texts written on top of an image, but it ends up selecting the image underneath too. Samsung please revert the change or allow the users to change its behaviour, thank you.

Same issue here. Selection mode is grabbing anything it touches and not just exactly when you encircle with it. It makes it impossible to work with images and drawings close to one another on a note. Samsung Notes  has become unusable now.

The Notes app update recently (maybe it was today?) makes it so that if you click on the selection tool, you could enable/disable including partially selected objects. Thank goodness, bec that issue was a headache!

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE! With the new One UI 5 (Android 13) update comes also the new Samsung Notes update! And this issue alongside the search function issue has been fixed! If you havent received the update yet,please manually go to setting and check,if its still unavailable,it may have to do with your region but if you are the owner of Tab S6,S6 lite and onwards,you will get the update soon wherever you are!! Thank you samsung for listening to the users and thank you everyone else for commenting on the thread and bringing it to developer's attention♥️♥️♥️
