Make it a mainstack!
(It can have many, many substacks if you like!!!!! ;-)
Save and close it.
Do not make it a substack!

Which can have many, many substacks!
Just in case i didn't mention... :-)

This is also the ultimate solution for eventual "clone stack xyz" 
related "inconveniences"...
Hint, hint :-)
