This app can be downloaded from this link, however you need to root your Samsung Galaxy Note in order to install it.

  • Fixed Mode which uses the keyboard you setup inside the app, even if you use another keyboard for short amount of time, when you pull out the S-Pen the keyboard is reverted back to the one you choose.

The app can be also enabled to launch at boot but it also works without problems with third-party keyboard apps.

Also once you installed the app make sure you visit this XDA forum thread where you can find more details about this app. This app was tested and reported to work on below devices, however it practically should work on any device that can detect S-Pen position.
