The OBO-Edit Graph Viewer Plugin is a new way of visualising the GO tree. It uses the open source GraphViz package to draw parts of an OBO-Edit ontology as a user-configurable graph, as opposed to the standard tree view. When correctly configured, the Graph Viewer Plugin looks like this:

The picture in the center is generated by GraphViz, based on the current selection in the ontology editor panel. Terms are represented by term names enclosed in a filled shape. The arrows represent relationships between terms. Clicking a term name on the graph image will cause that term to become the main OBO-Edit selection. Fonts, colours and figures can all be configured by clicking the "Options" button. Full instructions for setting up the Graph Viewer Plugin can be found in the OBO-Edit user guide which is available on the "Help" menu in OBO-Edit.
