Hi Thomas,
I believe the only alternative view synchronized with the main window  
is in the Side View tool (under Favorites).  The default is a side  
view, but you can change it to "top" if that is any better.  You can  
make the Side View window large, but it is fairly limited in that  
there are only 2 choices of view, the background color does not  
change, it doesn't show the labels, etc.

When I tried this I kept attempting to move the structure with the  
mouse in the Side View, which doesn't work!
