Sorry the app's behaving strangely. A couple of things:
* What version of Draw for Android are you using? I heard of this issue in the last release but it hasn't come up since 3.0.10 was released a couple of weeks ago.
* Not a great idea to start deleting until you can see what's going on. Log in with your Adobe ID to Adobe Creative Cloud and see what's synced there.
* Once you see that all your work is synced, can you try force-quitting the app and relaunching it?
Let me know what you find.
Thanks for the quick responce.
I'm running 3.0.10. I should note that I'm using two different tablets, a
work tablet and home tablet. The tablets are the same model but running
different versions of Android.
I checked out my Creative Cloud account and there are duplicates there.
What process would you recommend for deleting duplicate projects? Should I
delete from the cloud, that way I know there is a backup? And should I
rename before deleting? I'm wondering if there is a chance that deleting a
duplicate will remove the one with the same name.

OK, that makes a little more sense now.
When syncing if you've had the same drawing open on two devices, sometimes the app doesn't know which version of the drawing to keep, so it keeps both... the original and a copy. Although it prevents the inadvertent loss of any changes that you might have wanted to keep, it makes things confusing if there are a lot of duplicates.
The safest way to "delete" the duplicates is to do it online at Adobe Creative Cloud because instead of Delete, the choice is actually Archive and all the work will drop into the Archive folder (which you'll see once you log in) where it stays for 30 days. That way, when you sync your work, if something's deleted that you want back, you can restore it to your device.
I always play these things safe... Try it with one drawing first and see if the result on your device(s) is what you want. If it is, go ahead and do the rest.
OK I'll definitely play it safe.
So as it stands, I should only sync one device to my creative cloud
I'm in the process of consolidating my work but the issue I'm having is
that there is seemingly no way to move pages inside of a project to another
project. Please correct me if I'm wrong. Right now my cloud and both
tablets are out of sync, and there are up to four duplicates of one
project. There are stranded pages inside of the duplicate projects so I'm
trying to consolidate pages from the duplicate projects back into one
project. Things are a bit of a mess.
If there is no way to move pages inside a project to another then what I'll
do is convert the pages to Illustrator. This would be a shame because there
seems to be no way to import the page back into a project. So my entire
work flow would move into Illustrator. Not the end of the world but a bit
of a disappointment.
Let me know if I'm understanding the limitations correctly.
I think the Draw could be a great tool for early project planning but as it
stands I've lost confidence in it. Wondering if you know of any updates
that would fix these issue. I'd give it a try again if there was an update
that addressed the issue.

It's not yet possible, in Draw for Android, to move drawings between projects. It will be. About bringing Ai files into Draw... I don't know whether that's being planned or not (for either iOS or Android).
I'm not sure why there are so many duplicates in your account. I know there was a duplication issue in the version before 3.0.10 so I'm hoping this latest version has corrected that (I definitely don't hear about it nearly as much).
Once you get the duplicates out of the app, leave both apps/devices open over wifi and things should sync up between the Creative Cloud and your two devices.
Let me know if you continue to have trouble with it. (If it's easier, you can also contact me through the in-app feedback.)
