You can reference them simply by name:

  go to stack "My Substack"

regardless of where you are, as long as the stack file that contains them
is open. If that stack file isn't open, you can use the "long form":

  go to stack "My Substack" of stack "The Main Stack"
or
  go to stack "My Substack" of stack "stackfile.rev"

If you want to move a substack out of the main stack, choose "Move Substack
to File" from the File menu. Or use the Stack Mover in the Application
Overview window (click the filename and flip the disclosure arrow to expand
the Application Overview and see the Stack Mover).
