Create a new ontology in the current or new (if need be) workspace.

Open an existing ontology (and its imports) in the current or new (if need be) workspace, based on web content specified by a Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

Open recent >

Display a sub-menu of recently-accessed ontologies, allowing the user to select one for opening.

Save (Ctrl-S)

Save any changed, open ontologies to the computer's persistent storage (eg, disk files). If an ontology already has a name, use that; otherwise, specify a new name.

Save as... (Shift-Ctrl-S)

Save the currently active ontology to the computer's persistent storage (eg, disk files). Specify a new name for the ontology.

Gather ontologies... (Shift-Ctrl-G)
