You can remove a slot from a class without deleting it from the knowledge base. You can remove the association between a slot and a class in one of two ways:

  • removing the slot from the template slots of the class

  • removing the class from the domain of the slot

You can only remove a direct slot from a class; you may not remove an inherited slot. Removing a slot cannot be undone; you may wish to save or archive the project before removing slots.

Removing a Slot at a Class

To remove a slot from the list of template slots for a class:

  1. Display the Class Editor for the class which has the slot you want to remove. The slots for the class will be displayed in the Template Slots pane.

  2. Highlight the slot(s) you wish to remove in the Template Slots pane. To highlight multiple slots, hold down the Ctrl (Cmd) key while clicking each slot. To highlight a range of slots, click the first slot, then hold down the Shift key and click the last slot in the range.

  3. Click the Remove Slot (slots_slot.remove) Template Slot button. Any slots you removed no longer appear among the slots for the class. They are also removed from any subclasses of the class.

Removing a Class from the Domain of a Slot

To remove a class from the classes listed in the domain of a slot:

  1. Display the Slot Editor for the desired slot. The Domain is located at the bottom right of the Slot Editor.

  2. Select the class(es) you wish to remove from your slot. To remove more than one class, hold down Ctrl (Cmd) while clicking, or use the Shift key to select a range of classes.

  3. Click the Remove Class (classes_class.remove) button at the top right of the Domain facet.

You can also delete a slot from the entire knowledge base, using the Slots tab. See Deleting a Slot for more information.
