In Procreate, when you are doing a lot of artwork, and if you fail to organize all your artwork, you can end up in a mess. Well, in order to organize the artwork, you can simply put them into a stack. Stacking your artwork is one of the best ways to organize your artwork. These stacks can be just considered like some folders, which hold your artwork and designs. This way, we can simply sort our work, and put similar things together, so that we can find them easily, and they are organized.
Now, let’s say that you have a lot of stuff in your stack, and now you want to get some of the artworks, and designs removed (unstacked) from the stack.

This is important when you want to keep your work organized, and you have got too much of things in the stack.
