Note: For ANSI-IEEE drawings, rung wires will be drawn horizontally. For IEC format drawings, wires will be drawn vertically.

When drawing ladder wires, users are prompted to pick a top left point and a bottom right point. How the wires are arranged depends on the drawing format (ANSI-IEEE, or IEC). Once the corner points are selected, the user is prompted to select the space between the ladder rungs. The default value is 1in (ANSI) or 5mm (IEC).
