start a new empty patch
and prepare a double patch:
set input 1 to "aux" (where you'll connect your ac. guitar) and input 2 to "guitar" (where you'll connect your electric g.)
put everything has to do with the el. guitar (amp + fx) on Path B, by default is already panned right
for your ac. guitar put everything on Path A (already pannned left)..
to keep a complete separation of the 2 paths do not put anything before the split point
for your acoustic sound don't use any amp model, much better the "vintage mic pre" fx
obviously your final HD output must be in stereo and you'll need both 2 output cables for L and R to go to the PA, if you want 2 separate channels and settings at the PA mixer board
also remember that the included tuner works only on input 1 and in case you need it for your el. guitar (input 2 above) you'll have to reverse the things written above..
anyway generally speaking much better to use an external piezo tuner

I use both an acoustic and an electric in my normal setup, but all patches are mono. I do the following:
Electric through Guitar in
Acoustic through Aux in
I setup the electric patch on one preset with input 1 = guitar and input 2 as variax
I setup the acoustic patch on another preset with input1 = variax and input 2 as Aux in
I have multiple electric patches and a couple acoustic patches.
This way, the tuner works for the correct instrument when the correct patch is selected.
Works nice for my setup.

Thanks jhteeters - i will try that set up.
I'm sure it will change when my Variax shows up
