Perhaps I should switch IDE's, but I rather like the Variable Explorer feature in Spyder.

There are lots of IDEs.  Some of them have more trouble than others dealing with graphics from within a GUI window.  I happen to use (and like WingIDE - the name collision is purely an accident).  It supports multiple sub-windows, including ones for examining variables, and also running short snippets of code independently of the main code (thus, and very handy in science, plot an array as it exists at a break point to see what it “looks” like, and not just look at numbers).  I would highly recommend you explore alternative IDEs.
