You could use various Window options. CreateDocument[{Plot3D[ Cos[x] Sin[y], {x, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}, {y, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}]}, Saveable -> False, WindowSize -> {300, 250}]; David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark From: Januk [mailto:ggroup at sarj.ca] Hi, I am trying to display a 3D graphic in a separate window from my main notebook. The idea is that as I'm editing the data driving the graphic (regardless of where I am in the notebook), I can still see and manipulate the visualization. I can make this work with a command like: CreateDocument[{ Plot3D[Cos[x] Sin[y], {x, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}, {y, -2 \[Pi], 2 \ [Pi]}] }] However, the resulting window usually comes up much too large and in seemingly random locations on my screen. A much better solution would be something like: CreatePalette[{ Plot3D[Cos[x] Sin[y], {x, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}, {y, -2 \[Pi], 2 \[Pi]}] }] But on my system, the resulting graphic can not be rotated. I get similar results if I use CreateDialog instead. Does anyone have suggestions or workarounds which get me the best of both worlds? Thanks, Januk
