Unfortunately, I have deep bugs trying to do that with some
individuals where it is impossible to add properties. This
disqualifies the approach, it is a shame!

As far as I could see the prompt tab does not allow to work OWL
Is that true?

This is what we are doing already, with the client-server mode, but
the performance is catastrophic for anyone with DSL or less (it
probably requires at least 10Mb/s up and down). Two of the companies
in our project have their network that is too weak for it! Hence I
really want to look for another solution.
