One simple approach is to create a Dynamic entity that shows the values of the options that you are interested in. Here's an example: DynamicModule[{viewPoint = N@{Pi, Pi/2, 2}}, Column[{ Plot3D[Sin[x + y^2], {x, -3, 3}, {y, -2, 2}, ViewPoint -> Dynamic[viewPoint]], Dynamic[viewPoint] } ] ] Best, David On Oct 4, 1:40 am, Theo Moore <tsg.mo... at googlemail.com> wrote: > Hi, > > I'm looking for an easy way to specify the 3d viewing options that you > can alter by clicking a 3d plot and dragging your mouse.
