Try changing the base URI to be that of your ontology rather than just clicking 
“OK” in step 3.

FWIW I find using Turtle easier than RDF/XML because then if you have to do a 
fix-up it’s much simpler to edit in a text editor. Also, as ontologies get very 
large, the Turtle parser taking 20% of the time to load vs RDF/XML makes a 
difference.

Cheers,
