You should start with the Getting Started guide, and then use the User's Guide as a reference for more advanced topics.

* I draw ontology by using protege-OWL Viz.
You can't use the OWLViz plug-in with Frames ontologies.  The plug-in was developed specifically to work with OWL ontologies in Protege-OWL.

For Frames ontologies, you could use any one of the following visualization plug-ins:

- OntoViz (
- Jambalaya (
- TGViz (

In the future, if you are looking for plug-ins, you could check out the plug-ins library on our wiki:
