    We're in the same boat.

    You do know that iCloud note syncing was written before Tim Cook took over? Doesn't matter that OS X didn't get it until Mountain Lion, the big mistake is using IMAP under the hood. It was never meant for these kind of things.

    Here's my thing,

     

    When an "upgrade" has less functionality then the previous version then it's actually "****" (Hint: Rhymes with "Bit")

    HEY APPLE...it's been 10 months. This is an important and pretty simple app. Fix the damned problem.

     

    On a broader note, Apple sofware does seem to be having the same problems that Windows software has had for years: It's becoming bloated and unreliable, and the fixes are not happening. This apple fan-boy is starting to look at non-Apple solutions seriously for the first time in a long time.

    For me this worked. I turned off the NOTES checkbox in iCloud on my macbook, and i turned it off on my iCloud on my iPhone. The notes remained on my computer, a single version but dissapeard from my phone. Then i turned it back on my phone, but not on my macbook, the ones on my macbook showed up on my phone and when I added a new item on my phone it showed up on my computer. So moral of the story is to uncheck the iCloud NOTES on the mac and leave it checked on the iCloud for the phone.

    I'm sorry, but I'd have to rank that "solution" as "craptacular". But thanks for the option.

     

    Just make it the way it was...

    I think I have the answer

     

    Thankfully, this has a rather straightforward fix.

     

    1. Open Terminal. (Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app)

     

    2. Quit the Notes.app.

     

    3. Enter in the terminal WITHOUT the quotes "rm -rf ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes"

     

     

    This probably will work.

     

     

    it may switch the icloud option for notes off so to solve this go to

     

    System prefrences/mail contacts &amp; calanders/icloud... make sure notes is ticked.

     

     

     

    Let me know if this workes.

    This worked for me after following this process and rebooting.  Turning back on Notes in the iCloud settings alone did not work until after I rebooted.  Probably a relogin might do it as well.  Thanks!  Cheers!

    worked for me

    but this resets the notes app - like my chosen fonts etc.

    cheers.

    Warning - if this goes wrong - you lose all your notes !!!

    this is really screwed up for me now.

     

    this used to be simple and  "just worked"  but now it is a mess. Notes used to be part of the mail app - now it seems a new app has been put out which just does not work. this Icloud addon is  just made it more unusable

     

    Apple had this right before ... then broke the golden rule "don't fix something that is not broken"  is now unuesable.

     

    We used to use apple as our core for our business - it was good safe and relaible - but now we are in the process of replacing all apple devices out. Not long ago you would sit in a meeting and 9 out 10 people would have a Apple device, be it a macBook, iPhone or iPad. Last week I was in meetings with ten blue chip companies in AU, and was the only person that had an iphone. In one meeting I asked the CIO of a leading bank what he did with is iPad and he anwsered "Gave it to my son, as it was not reliable for work, we now don't have any apple product here"   

     

    I think apple has lost the plot.  "It just works" now has a big NOT after it

    I just spoke with a representative online and the fix is quite simple.

     

    You need to do the following:

     

    1) Go to System Preferences > iCloud

    2) Uncheck Notes

    3) Agree to Delete from Account

    4) Wait 10 seconds

    5) Recheck Notes

     

    The problem is that the accounts aren't merging properly.

    ME 2.  Deleted Dupes after and Mtn Lion 10.8.4 Update (don't know if related) and now they seem to be all gone. Will try AdamBCo but I am afraid they're gone since they're not on my other IOS devices or on iCloud.

    Disappointment.

    2 came back but the others seem gone.  I'll try Lionel woolf's suggestion too, although they are vague to a neophyte like me.  Where does it get placed and how do you save it?  Any other ideas?

     

    Should not have been so quick on the trigger to delete the dupes.  Ugh

    Are they saved on your iCloud?
