Protege-Frames allows you add a note to the Editor for any frame; that is, a class, instance, or slot. These notes, which are not part of the ontology structure, float over the Editor for that frame.

The buttons for working with a note are located at the top right of the Editor. This picture shows them in the Class Editor:

These buttons allow you to add, delete, display, or hide a note.

Adding a Note

To add a note to a frame:

  1. Click the Create Note (windows_class_note.create, windows_slot_note.create, windows_instance_note.create) icon at the top right of the Editor (e.g., Class Editor, Instance Editor, etc.) A yellow note will be created.

As always, you can resize or reposition the note by dragging. However, you cannot move it out of the Editor window.

Deleting a Note

To remove a note:

  1. Click the Delete Note (windows_class_note.delete, windows_slot_note.delete, windows_instance_note.delete) button at the top right of the Editor.

  2. If there is only one note, you will be prompted to confirm the deletion. Click OK.

  3. If there is more than one note, a list of notes will be displayed. Select the note you wish to delete and click OK.

To hide all existing notes for the current tab:

  1. Click the Hide Notes (windows_class_note.hide, windows_slot_note.hide, windows_instance_note.hide) button at the top right of the Editor. The button will change to show that notes have been hidden.
