As Mike wrote the notes are stored in an arrayEncoded array in Application
Support -> LCTinyDict -> tinyDictNotes.array
They identify a dictionary by a combination of Keyword Type and Library. 

TinyDict uses the current version of LC Dictionary it is running in. That
means regardless of version or license the dictionary is up to date. (all
those differences give you slightly different dictionaries) If that version
of your dictionary has an entry that matches an entry in tinyDictNotes.array
then the note will be shown. No need to rewrite the note. You can take your
tinyDictNotes.array file, zip it and import it into your tinyDict running on
a different computer or send it off to someone else. tinyDictNotes.array
will be merged into your existing notes by appending the imported notes to
the existing notes.

Notes came into being because they were mentioned a couple of times as a
useful feature of a community dictionary. They are primarily intended as a
means to keep personal notes, workarounds, reminders, etc. Not more not
less.

Kind regards
Bernd
