Stacking your creations is a wonderful approach to tidying up and arranging your gallery in Procreate. But what if you need to switch up your stacks? How is stacking undone? Unstacking in Procreate is quite simple and provides you a lot of freedom to rearrange your Procreate gallery however you see fit.
Let’s go on and look at some methods that can assist you in unstacking some files from the element if you have opted to remove some files from the stack. Before checking out how to unstack several files from the stack, we will first focus on unstacking a single file.
Unstacking in Procreate
Here are the processes for unstacking files in Procreate
SEE: How To Use Procreate
Step 1: Open the Procreate application and select the stack you wish to modify (unstack some files from the stack). You would be able to see some of the components of that specific stack on the screen.
Step 2: You tap and hold on to the file you want to unstack in this step. The name of your stack is visible in the top left corner of the screen, where you must now move this file. You should exit the stack and return to the gallery after doing this.
Step 3: After arriving at the gallery, you can dump the file. That’s it! You’ve successfully unstacked the file from the stack.
The fact that you have successfully removed certain files from the stack means that you may now add them to another stack or do anything you want.
The process for removing a single file from a stack has been demonstrated. Will you have to repeat the series mentioned above of processes so many times if you wish to unstack multiple files from the stack? You can do that, but if you want to unstack several files off the stack at once, we have something better than this. If you follow the instructions below, you will be able to unstack several elements files from the stack simultaneously.
Unstacking Multiple Files From A Stack
Multiple file unstacking differs slightly from standard file unstacking. The actions listed below will show you how to do this:
Step 1: In the Procreate application, select the stack where the adjustments are to be made. You would be able to see some of the components of that specific stack on the screen.
Step 2: To remove a file from the stack, you must tap and hold on to it. Simply tap on some other files that need to be unstacked while keeping that one on hold to select them.
Step 3: Once you are satisfied with your selections and are ready to unstack all of those selected files, you need to drag them to the upper left corner of the screen, where the stack’s name is shown. You should arrive at the gallery after doing this. If it doesn’t, you can give it another go.
Step 4: Now, while you are at the gallery, you can release your finger and drop the files. The entire file stack will now be removed.
The components from the stack have now been unstacked. You can now add them to another stack or do whatever you want with them, but we have also successfully unstacked all the necessary files.
Tips When Unstacking in Procreate
Tip 1: Use Strategy To Unstack Your Designs
It’s tempting to eliminate them all at once when you have a large stack that needs to be broken down. You should resist the urge and make sure you have a strategy for where you want all of your designs to go. Carelessly unstacking could result in a disorganized mess.
Tip 2: Your Designs Should Ideally Be Unstacked in Logical Sections
Gather all the pieces that will be displayed in the main gallery together, and then arrange the remaining pieces according to their final organization.
Unstack all three of your designs at once and transfer them to their new stack, for instance, if you have three designs that will be added to an already existing stack, do them all at once. Keep in mind that keeping your designs tidy is the entire point of stacking as you rearrange things.
General Note About Stacks
Stacks are excellent, but it’s very easy for designs to become lost in them. They might resemble the file folders that were supposed to keep everything accessible and tidy but instead become buried at the back of the filing cabinet. Looking over your stacks frequently is an excellent habit. You won’t misplace or forget any of your designs if you do it that way.
While you’re at it, check to see if your stacks are still optimally arranged.
Your organizational requirements will alter as you produce more and more designs. It will make sense to arrange items differently or to build new stacks based on the new standards. Perhaps you used your artwork to launch a fantastic t-shirt business, and you need a stack of your company’s designs.
Simply be aware of how your stacks are serving you, and utilize this helpful unstacking technique to reorganize things as necessary.
