How to add a dynamic scale bar in (or close to) map extent while data view is turned on?
I'm panning a lot (raster images) and I need to get more precise "feel" of distances just in one glance since I'm panning in various scales.

You can add scale bars to the Layout view, but not to the Data view. This may be possible with an Add-In but I am not aware of any available, although a thorough google search may turn one up.
There is an existing idea on the Esri Ideas page asking for them to be added to ArcGIS - Dynamic scale bar for data view
