    The issue is fixed in the versions 2019.3.0b11, 2019.2.14f1, and 2018.4.13f1, and beyond.

    We are still investigating the possibility of the fix being backported to 2017.4.

    Same here. Can't afford losing too many players that using Samsung s-pen, still stuck at 2018.4.8f1. Tried 2018.4.12f1 and failed in case you wonder.

    Hello! Problem still exists in 2019.2.12f1.

    Problem still exists in 2019.2.12f1.
    When will this be resolved?
    A growing amount of users are using these pens with our apps which increases the amount of bad reviews. It doesn't feel a complex bug to resolve for you guys, so it would be great to give it enough priority. thanks.
