Hi.  If you can split your big note into sections at least (I'm thinking on a desktop for ease of access) you should find it simpler to locate the record you need.  Ideally,  you need one record per note.  Searching within notes is also easy - put your search text in the clipboard to jump to the correct note,  then check the three dots menu for search within note and search that text again.
