I have an iMac w/mountain lion and an iPad.  Notes sync fine from iPad to iMac over wifi and direct connection but will not sync from iMac to iPad.  Calendar items and other apps sync fine.  Any suggestions?  Thanks.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    First check that all your settings are correct, that notes syncing (mail and notes on a computer) is checked on all devices (system preferences > iCloud on a mac and settings > iCloud on a iPhone, iPad or iPod).


    Make sure the notes you are adding are added to your 'iCloud' account and not an 'On My Mac', 'On My Phone'  or other non iCloud account (you can do this by checking in accounts on an iOS device, or the left side panel in mail on a computer), non iCloud notes will not sync.


    If you are sure that everything is set up correctly and your notes are in the iCloud group, you might try unchecking notes syncing (mail and notes on a computer) in the iCloud settings, restarting your device and then re-enabling notes syncing.
