True; and lists, styled texts, etc. could also be useful in an inspector. I already developed a concept of such an approach in SqueakSheet<https://github.com/hpi-swa-teaching/SpreadSheetTool> with a few fellow students (just that it's nested in a table there). Maybe we should implement something similar in the Inspector at some time ...

Yes, Tim. I was trying to build a tool to view the state of a simulated
vm - displayForm, activeContext etc.

Essentially, I was looking for a pluggable widget and model that would
show a live view of displayForm scaled to fit the frame as the window
gets resized. So that rules out Christoph hacks.

Doing "displayForm asMorph ..." or "(ImageMorph new image:myForm)
openInWindow" as Karl suggested is quite tedious :-(.

Such a widget would also be useful in an inspector.
