The layout should specify the Notes table in Layout Setup...| Show Records from.
This layout should be set up with list or table view so that you can see more than one notes record at a time.
You can then perform a find or use Go to Related records to pull up a found set on this layout of just the records for a given contact record.
BTW, you have posted this request in the section intended for reporting possible software bugs. Posting such questions in the FM Pro Forum will get your question read by more fellow FileMaker users than it will here...
