numberbox mouse resolution (max4)

    Is there a way to slow down the speed that the numbers change? As they are it feels pretty fiddly and takes more concentration than it should to land on the right number.

      Shift does not do that in max4.6.3 as far as I can tell, at least not on windows.

      "click then type number ^^"
      I don't follow.

      shift might work for dials and sliders (can't recall) but if it does, you could use them instead and just have the number box display the value, or have both interactive.

      @saladfork: what Roman was trying to say is that if you don't like the mouse behavior, you can always type numbers into the box.
      Another technique I find useful: when you've clicked on a numbox, use the up/down arrow keys to increment/decrement. Easy to control, even with autorepeat.
