Fixed but How? 🤷🏼‍♂️ Jan 16 '23 Needing Serious Advice re: Losing Faith in Apple Notes

You have the option of deleting iCloud data from all devices in Settings, iCloud, Manage Account Storage. I’ve never used this to correct a problem and the language isn’t consistent from app to app

Have you tried creating a new user on your Mac and restoring the file to that account? If successful you would at least have the possibility of then exporting the data.

The “from all devices” looks promising. I’ll check that out (if there is a next time). Thank you.
