Yes, as I recall, the note columns in Bento were associated with the related data field links themselves. So treat these relationships as many-to-many and add the note field(s) in addition to the 2 foreign key fields (e.g. Projects_ID, Texts_ID) to the join table (e.g. Projects-Texts). You can base the portal on the join table occurrence and display both the note and related fields in the same portal row.
Projects --< Projects-Texts >--Texts
(You can get creative and put the notes field(s) in a pop-over on the portal row so they are normally hidden if you like.)
Hi Jade, thank you very much for your help. I will give this a try. Best, Philipp
Hi Jade, I have implemented your advice, including the pop-over, a function I had not used before. Great stuff! thanks again, Philipp
