Multiple note support

It's been a long, long time since I've used FileMaker and all my knowledge has left me unfortunately and I need some assistance.


I have some Contacts and I want to be able to add multiple notes for each contact.


I have Contacts and Notes and the appropriate key fields and relationship set up.  My Notes table has creation date, subject, and the note itself (aside from the pk and fk keys.)  I have a portal on my contacts layout to list all notes that are created but allow creation of records via relationship unchecked because I don't want end users creating new records in the portal.


In addition to the portal to list all notes on my Contacts layout I have the Subject field and Note field so when I click on a note in the portal the data will be displayed in those fields. 


Can I create a button to create a new note and use the existing subject and note field already on my Contacts layout without having to switch layouts?  If so, how would I go about doing this?
