How to turn off auto straighten in notes app

I really like the samsung notes app, it provides a lot of features and convenience compared to other note apps I tried, but there is one big nit pick that is really close to having me switch off of it. Whenever I have to draw anything thats small and requires precise lines, the auto straighten kicks in and ruins my flow. As an example, lets say I wanted to write out whats in the picture below. Looks simple enough, a straight down line with a little extra going to the left. The problem is, if I draw the line straight down to slow, the auto-straighten kicks in. As I start drawing the small line towards the left, instead of it being the color of the pen it is grayed out and doesn't count as me drawing. What this does is it forces me to have to lift up and put back down the pen if I want to draw the extra little line that goes to the left. I know the auto-straight feature only lets me continue drawing if I draw the line to the left long enough, but in this case its short so that won't work. Is there some way to disable this?

Unfortunately this is a feature that cannot be disabled. The idea is that you draw a line and then hold your finger/pen at the end of that line and it will straighten the line for you. If you don't hold your finger/pen at the end, it will keep the original line. Hope this helps

This should be like an autospell feature. I don't understand why something that alters the output of my pen is forced on me. It basically means I can't take my time when writing something out, otherwise I get locked into this autostraight mode. Thanks for the answer, hopefully there's eventually an option to turn it off. Literally every other notes app lets me write out what I want to write, I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard.
