[protege-discussion] First question, and a test

Not sure if the latest version provides that level of access control.

In multiuser mode, certain things are turned off - the forms editor,  
for example - which helps.

I use Protege in a similar way and have found that by turning off the  
Classes tab and the Slots tab in the Project hides the editing of the  
Class structure. Note that I'm using Protege Frames which separates  
the definitions of Classes and Instances. Not sure about OWL.
In practice, this hiding of the Classes tab seems to work well for  
populating the Instances only in the onotology. Editing of the Classes  
is done in a stand one mode, allowing the forms to be edited when the  
classes are being defined or refined.

Hope this helps
