    I updated to IOS 9, then to 9.0.1 and now to 9.0.2. I am using the new notes on Iphone 6 and Ipad air 2. The first time I tried the sketch feature it worked. I thought it was neat. After I closed notes and then reopened it and pressed the sketch figure no tools appear. The sketch box appears but I can't do anything with it. This is on the phone and Ipad. I tried restarting, in fact every update restarts the devices. I do have notes set for iCloud, it no longer syncs with Yosemite. I believe upon updating to the new notes it said It wouldn't sync until I updated to EL Capitan. Could that be the reason the tools don't show up in notes? I would think that others would have this problem.

    I Updated to EL Cap on my iMac today. (10/4/15). Notes now sync but still no sketch tools on Iphone and Ipad. Someone must have a fix.

    Another update. If I close the app with the app switcher I can get the tools and use them. This is a one time use unless I close the app again. That is not ideal and I don't think that it was designed that way, but it's a start.

    I can't use notes that are shared with other devices. Only time the sketch works is for the notes that's just on my phone. I have my whole family and a wide range of devices shared that could be why. There may be a way to get it to work with sync but I have not found out yet.

    I seemed to fix it last night by logging into iCloud web mad opening notes. Whatever happened the sketch has been working perfectly for 24+ hours. Knock on wood.

    If you get a reply from Apple for a fix would you post it here?
