wire reference issues

I can't seem to have line reference wire numbers on my ladder. I set it in the project settings to 1,2,3 but the numbers remain the same as the first line number. Any suggestions ?

I'm not sure if this is the issue or not, but the wire number doesn't change through node dots.  It will change once you insert symbols onto a rung but it will only change on the side of the symbol that is opposite the ladder rail (bus).  See attached screen capture.  I'm just guessing since I haven't seen your drawing, but this can sometimes be confusing for new users of ACE.  The line reference-based wire numbers can only start if the is a component separating the rung from the rail (bus).
