The screen below shows you how Ladder Logic programs are created in Cubloc Studio.
The red box shown above is the Ladder Logic cursor. You may use the keyboard's up, down, left, and right keys or the mouse to control the red box.
After moving to the desired position, you can use the keys F3 through F12 to place the desired symbol. You can also enter text for each symbol.
At the very end of the Ladder Logic program, you must always put an END command.
To edit existing text, place the cursor in the desired location and press ENTER. A text box will appear for editing the text.
To erase a cell, select it with the cursor, and press the SPACE or DEL key.
A rung is a row in Ladder.
You can press CTRL-D to erase a rung. To recover an erased rung, press CTRL-Z (Hot key for Undo).
You can press CTRL-I to insert blank a rung.
If you press the INS key, a blank cell is inserted and items on the right are moved one cell to the right.

You can enter comments by adding an apostrophe (').
