Hi Pat,

Thank you for reporting it.
That seems to be a race condition issue like him. Are you still not able to see the notes? Can you see them on other devices?
I can see your notes stored in the Inkdrop database.
If the issue still persists, can you please try reinstalling the app from here?

He reported via email that it’s resolved. Closing it.
