Does Apple Numbers allow pop-up menu values to be overwritten with custom values?

Hi team,
I've built a s/s in Excel with Drop-down lists.  I can select from the list, a value as required.  I can change it by reselecting from the list or I make it a value other than what is in the list, just by overtyping  the value.

In Numbers '09 v2.1 (436) I can create the pop-up menus as required and they work fine; however, I cannot edit the cell to insert a custom value.

The s/s is used on an iPad to provide a form selection with specified options.  Now we need to provide a form with custom measurements.

How do I override the selected value and insert an custom value?
 
Cheers
Bernard

No answers were forthcoming on this. so I'm closing the question.


I found there was no way to chaieve this outcome, so we just left the option to "Custom" and returned the word "Custom" to the string.
