View externally-scoped variables in Workspace browser

If execution is suspended in a nested function because of an inserted breakpoint, the Workspace browser only shows local variables even though variables defined in outer (nesting) functions have external scope. Is there any way to display those externally-scoped variables in the browser? If not, this might be something to consider for a future release.

There is an option 'Function Call Stack' in the toolstrip of the MATLAB editor when in debug mode. Change this drop down option the workspace you would like to view.

Right, I was just hoping (wishing) there might be a more convenient way to view the values of all variables that are in-scope to a nested function at once, including those assigned in an outer (nesting) function.
