The Superclasses pane, at the bottom of the Class Browser, displays all superclasses of the currently selected class.

Superclasses pane, in Class Browser

Note: If you cannot see the Superclasses pane, your window may be too small. You can see the pane by enlarging your window or by dragging the slider bar at the bottom of the Class Browser. See Working With a Small Window for more information.

Viewing the List of Superclasses

To see a list of all superclasses of a given class, highlight any occurrence of the class in the Class Browser. The Superclasses pane automatically displays a list of all of the superclasses of the selected class.

Adding a Superclass

To add a superclass to the selected class, click the Add Superclass (classes_class.add) button, highlight the class you want as an additional superclass in the Select Class window, then click OK. See Adding a Superclass for more information.

Removing a Superclass

To remove a superclass from the list of superclasses for the selected class, highlight the superclass you want to remove and click the Remove Superclass (classes_class.remove) button. The superclass/subclass relationship is broken, but the superclass is not deleted from the knowledge base. See Removing a Superclass for more information.

Locating Another Superclass

To jump to a different superclass in the Class Browser, click on any superclass in the Superclasses pane. The highlight in the Class Browser automatically moves to the occurrence of the class which is directly under the chosen superclass. If the occurrence is not currently visible in the Class Browser, Protege-Frames automatically scrolls to the correct location and expands the hierarchy to make the class visible. See Jumping to Another Superclass for more information.
