Hi Brent,

select Format/Option Inspector from menu (in Win, Ctrl-Shift-O); in the OI
Window select global in the upper left selection and enter "Viewpoint"
(without quotes) in the "Lookup-line". Now press the Lookup button and change
the values according to your needs. If you're done, click onto the apply
button. That should do what you want.
