My next step would be to move the records in the global inbox into another database one by one and see whether that database stops syncing at any point; what I’m wondering is whether there is some file attribute (a special character?) snarling things up. As a shortcut, you could - especially if there are lots of records - move all records to another database and create one new record in the global inbox to test whether that syncs. (Don’t forget records in trash).
My next step if that didn’t work would be to copy the inbox database file from on device to another (via Finder, e.g. using AirDrop or a USB stick), and to see whether they sync after that (and if not, probably I’d try the copy the other way round, so make a copy before overwriting).
If that all didn’t work I’d come back here to see if anybody who actually knows what they are talking about had posted.
[edit: I had missed that the second device is an iOS device, so some suggestions are not immediately applicable]
Thanks Blanc! I considered that before posting. However, I treat the “global inbox” as a normal database that’s always available (i.e. it contains everything I always need quick access to, e.g. apps’
help files etc. Tried different database setups, but it turned out that I needed to look something up that often that using the global inbox was (for me) the fastest way.). So there are 3 GB in my “inbox” - and unsynced records
No. Did you use this to resolve sync issues in the past? Should’t make a difference which one is the server, I think.
Took this while trying via cable. That’s what I don’t get: I can’t recall situations where Bonjour via cable failed before.
I’ve now checked file integrity again, it now reported 6 errors, so I rebuilt the database and checked integrity afterwards, all fine. But still the Bonjour connection gets lost, i.e. still can’t sync the global inbox.
There’s no such known issue, right now I can’t even imagine how this might be possible. Maybe some kind of race condition?

By the way, are you able to reproduce the issue by creating a Markdown file directly on the Mac in the same folder? Are local copies of all files in the Dropbox folder available?
