Adding a Specialization

Like relationships, specializations can be added in one of two ways. One method is to click the Specialization tool in the toolbox:

Add Specialization from Toolbox

And then first mouse over to the child concept:

Mouseover Child Concept to Add Specialization

When you click and mouse away, you’ll see that the tail of the arrow has been attached to the child concept:

Click Child Concept to Add Specialization

Now mouse over to the parent concept, and click to release:

Click Parent Concept to Finish Adding Specialization

Second Method for Adding a Specialization

The other method uses the context menu of an existing concept. This method will add the specialization as well as the concept that it is connecting to. If you select ‘Add Parent’:

Add Parent from Context Menu

The arrow will be added pointing away from your original concept:

Result of Add Parent from Context Menu

(This produces the same result as above where we used the Specialization tool from the toolbox– the arrow points away from the starting concept.)

If you instead select ‘Add Child’:

Add Child from Context Menu

The arrow points _toward _the starting concept:

Result of Add Child from Context Menu

Again, both context menu methods create both a specialization relationship and a concept– the only difference is the direction of the arrow.

Specialization Element

Specialization Element

The specialization element is the simplest of them all. It cannot be customized in any way.

Detailed Specialization Information

No further information is customizable on a specialization. The detailed information panel will show info for the two concepts it connects rather than any information about the specialization– because there’s nothing to show.

Specialization Export Type

Specializations are exported as rdfs:subClassOf.
