I love the calligraphic style of the handwriting produced by the S-pen. However, I do wish Samsung would allow me to select a handwriting colour of my own choosing, rather then just blue or, in some apps, a kind of lilac-blue colour. 

I would love to handwrite in teal green. What colour would you like to write in?

Please use the Feedback area to ask Samsung to give us a choice of handwriting colours.

As for I'm aware you can change the pen ink colour when writing in the notes part but I think it only has four colours to choose from throu.

@Keith 30, in the Samsung S-Notes app you can select from a wide range of colours. But outside that app it seems one is restricted to blue. (Gboard handwriting also allows only one colour.)

Hi, @Peibyn. I appreciate your feedback. The option to change the colour of your handwriting when using certain apps would depend on the app developer(s) incorporating this feature.

For which particular apps would you like to change the handwriting colour, please?

Hello, @PaulM1.

Thanks very much for your helpful reply!

Instead of using the keys of the Samsung keyboard in any app in which writing is required, I use Samsung keyboard's handwriting option.

Samsung handwriting's settings (of which there are not many) can be accessed and altered in "Settings" > "Keyboard List and Default". So I would like for there to be in THAT section a choice of colours for use when handwriting, and just as the currently available options in that section apply to ANY app in which handwriting is used, I would like the chosen handwriting colour to apply across all apps in which I enter data by handwriting.

I currently use Samsung's handwriting facility, which is part of the Samsung keyboard, in any app in which writing is required. So, examples are: all of my email apps (on different Samsung devices I use Yahoo Mail, K-9, Gmail, and Fairemail); Google Docs (a word-processing app); Colornote (a note-taking app); Duolingo (a language-learning app); and several other apps. In all of these apps I am restricted by Samsung Keyboard's handwriting options to write only in blue (although in certain situations the colour changes to a dark lilac).

Within Samsung's "S-Notes" app there is an option to change the colour of handwriting, and that is great. When using that particular app I choose a colour other than the default blue. It is very limiting though that when I handwrite in all of the OTHER apps I am restricted to the default blue - although the other settings which I have chosen for Samsung handwriting pertain.

Surely Samsung's technicians could introduce into the Samsung keyboard settings an option to change the handwriting colour to an alternative default colour, which will then apply across ALL apps in which the Samsung keyboard can be accessed - just as the options which I have currently selected for Samsung handwriting pertain across all apps in which I use the handwriting option of the Samsung keyboard?

Thank you.

Peibyn.

Hi there, @Peibyn. I apologise for the later-than-intended reply. 

Thanks very much for your feedback, and for taking the time to make this suggestion. I've noted your suggestion and passed it on to our Research & Development Team to see if this facility can be incorporated into a future update.

I'll update the thread when I get feedback from the team.
