  3. Make your selection and click the left mouse button.

The slot menu allows you to perform the following tasks. Not all tasks are available at all times; tasks that cannot be performed are grayed out. Note that metaclasses and metaslots are advanced features; you should have a good understanding of Protege-Frames before you use metaclasses:

  • slots_slot.create Create slot: Creates a new slot. This operation is identical to clicking the Create Slot (slots_slot.create) button.

  • Create Subslot: Creates a subslot subordinate to the highlighted slot.

  • Create subslot using slot metaclass...: (advanced) If you have added slot metaclasses to your project, allows you to create a new subslot, using a slot metaclass as a template.

  • slots_slot.delete Delete Slot: Deletes the highlighted slot and all of its subslots, removing it from the current project. This operation is identical to the Delete Slot (slots_slot.delete) button.

  • Change slot metaclass: (advanced) Changes the slot metaclass of the highlighted slot. See Changing the Slot Metaclass of a Slot for more information.

  • Change slot metaclass of subslots: (advanced) Changes the slot metaclass of all subordinate slots to the slot metaclass of the highlighted slot.

  • Expand: Shows all slots subordinate to the highlighted slot. This is a multi-level display operation that is more extensive than clicking the "collapsed" (all_hierarchy.collapsed) icon, which only shows the next level of direct subslots.

  • Collapse: Hides all slots subordinate to the highlighted slot. This is a multi-level display operation that is more extensive than clicking the "expanded" (all_hierarchy.expanded) icon to the left of the slot.
