"Circuit Element Parameters" will work regardless of angle of view. It doesn't need to be in top-down view for "Circuit Element Parameters" to be accessable. The reason why "Circuit Element Parameters" is not avaialable is because there are no Capacitors, Inductors, Resistors, Ports, Voltage Probes, Current Sources, Voltage Sources, or Net Terminals.
