Recipes not Saving Kgriffio — Jun 05, 2019 05:10PM PDT

I have been having a problem with my recipes on the android app. I have tried several recipes with many different (noninclusive) ingredients, and I have received messages like "could not save recipe," and a suggestion for a campbell's soup recipe. Due to the variety of ingredients, I do not believe that it has to do with bad data on any one ingredient, but I do not know why I am unable to save my favorite recipes.
I enter my ingredients manually, and when available scan the bar codes for accurate info.

Additionally, I have had an issue with items in my diary multiplying or disappearing, and this majorly screws with my macro counting.

Thanks for any help,
