No, the stack viewer shows the entire stack or nothing.

One way to get around the stack viewer scrolling beyond the border is to
set the viewer magnification level to a number less than 1. If the
pieces are large, they will still be visible in the viewer, but at a
reduced size. But that's not always practical if the pieces are small.

An alternative to using the stack viewer to manage stacks is to add a
Game Piece Inventory window. You can customize it to show pieces in each
location, at any magnification level, and you can even send commands to
the pieces in the stack by right-clicking on pieces in the window.  It's
a neat way to manage big clumsy stacks of pieces, because you can access
any piece directly without having to unstack and then re-stack pieces.
