[protege-discussion] protege-discussion Digest, Vol 18, Issue 14

A comment and another question:

Thanks for the response.  The "trick," to me, was having to click the 
"save as gif" option prior to clicking the "create graph" button.  I 
did it the other way around yesterday.  As far as whether the 
eventual dot program input is a Word file, it is shown on my Window 
XP desktop as a Word file.

What I ended up doing yesterday was to re-save the Word file as .txt 
and use a DOS command to draw the graph (as another one of you 
advised), and save the output as a .pdf file.  The advantage of .pdf 
seems to be that I can easily print a large model on multiple pages, 
whereas the printout for a .gif file seems to be squeezing everything 
on one page that became not legible.

Now my next question:

I noticed that when a Slot of the Instance type is created and 
multiple classes are allowed, those classes are in the OR 
relationship.  For example, I created three classes: Car, 
Transmission, and Engine and a Slot called Contains.  I, then 
included the Transmission and Engine classes in the "Allowed Classes" 
pane in the Contains Slot form.  What I get would be:  a Car Contains 
Instances of Engine Or Transmission.
Any advice, other than creating two individual slots?
