Stacks

Group your artwork into Stacks to keep your Gallery sorted, clean, and easy to navigate.

Stacks looks like a pile of layered thumbnails.

Create a Stack

You can create a Stack in two ways: using Select mode, or using drag and drop.

In Select mode, tap multiple artworks to select them, then tap the Stack button.

You can also drag and drop an artwork thumbnail on to another thumbnail to merge them into a new stack. When you've dragged the first artwork over the top of another, the bottom artwork will turn blue. This allows you to drop the top artwork onto it to make a Stack.

Adding artwork to a Stack

To drag and drop an artwork onto an existing Stack, use the same method as above. Except you must hold the top thumbnail for a moment longer until the Stack flashes blue twice. The Stack will open up, allowing you to drop your held artwork anywhere among the thumbnails inside it.

You can Stack multiple artworks at once using bulk artwork actions.

Moving artwork out of a Stack

To move artwork out of a Stack, tap the stack to enter it. Pick up one or more artworks then tap the Stack return button in the top left of the tool bar ( < Stack ) with another finger. Now drop the items back in the Gallery.

Alternatively, drag the items over the Stack return button to bring them back to the Gallery.

Rename a Stack

All Stacks are named Stack by default. Rename a Stack the same way you rename an artwork: ​tap the title to show the keyboard and rename.
