Does TOS have ability to observe BID/ASK on multi-leg option orders, similar to capability of IBK?

I placed an order in TOS, that I can observe from IBK as seen below from a friend with IBK (The BID is 0.00 with size 1: That is me, from an order placed in TOS).

I would like access to equivalent information from TOS. Anyone know how?

I believe that is in the Order Book.
Thanks Andrew! Did not know that (or forgot).
Found it in the "Scan->Spread Book" after refining the selection to permit it to display.

It seems a better choice for this info would be when one is working an order, rather than hidden away like that. -- However, this is limited to the subset of orders within TDA!

It would be nicer to be able to see all orders.
I also submitted a request to TDA about it, so, perhaps more info will be forthcoming.

Closest thing I found was placing a manually constructed string representing the multileg order into the Level II Trade grid in place of symbol.
EG: ".QQQ200731P272-2*.QQQ200731P266+.QQQ200731P260" For a 6-wide fly on QQQ.
However, the data presented seems a bit unreliable, as I can observe my orders from time to time, but sometimes they are not included even though my orders are within the ranges displayed.

Help desk at TOS was not helpful.
