Question: When using the Gallery images to edit in Photo Note of S Note, it takes a long time to move or copy after adding strokes to inserted image and editing. What’s the problem?

Answer: S Note is an application for casual note taking.(Normally, a typical user can draw approximately 600 ~ 700 strokes on a single page)

Since each stroke is controlled individually by S Note's internal logic to provide various editable functions, performance degradation might be occur if there are too many strokes on edited images. S Note can provide a best performance in 2,000 strokes. For the best drawing experience, use SketchBook pro or ArtRage which are provided in Galaxy Gift.
