How to make a Ladder:
Using, insert, shapes and use a straight line to create 2 rails and then shorter lines to create the rungs. You have to use straight lines and make them a bit diagonal. This will allow the lines to be straight.
Connect all parts by ‘grouping’, click on a rung, hold the shift button down select the rest of the rungs and the rails. When you group the ladder, make sure not to click one rail more than once. If you do, then that rail wouldn’t be grouped with the rest of the ladder. Now if you move the ladder, it won’t separate. If it does separate then you have done something wrong, and you will have to start over again.
Now you may need to make it fatter and transparent. You can do this by clicking the weight button. You will be enabled to change the brightness, transparency and dimensions. There will be available patterns you could use.
