Input large numbers

Does anyone know if there is a smart way to input large numbers via a Lua menu?
As an example, here is a menu item

Code: [Select]
#t = 0 "Lens Thickness (mm)"

At the moment, if I, say, wish to enter 321, I need to watch the number ramping up from where it is, eg zero.

I was hoping to be able to move the cursor to the 100s and 10s etc

That is possible, e.g. with the G1x with the zoom lever. On the M3 it is the enlarge buttons
M100 100a, M3 101a, 2*G1x (101a,100e), S110 (103a), SX50 (100c), SX230 (101a), S45,

?

On my M3 all I can do is increase or decrease the number with the toggle wheel, ie up and down.

Not sure what you mean by the ‘enlarge buttons’.

I meant the buttons above the wheel.
