Ah yes, it does work. I was just using the scroll wheel. That doesn't work. You have to click on it to open the drop down menu and then select the value. That works.
Am I missing something? Is there a manual or something I should read which documents things like this?

Right, and that's what I meant. 99 is the largest build order you can put in from the drop-down.

I wouldn't mind having a way to put in precisely the number you want.

The scrollwheel not working with it is a known issue, it did sort of work for a bit but it didn't store the results properly, you had to manually select it afterwards so it got changed.

Not really, we update the Wiki and the Pedia when things are finalised but works in progress and unfinished features tend to not get written up until they're working properly—large numbers of open source projects have a documentation problem while they're in the "being made" stages.

In some cases, the UI should be clear enough that you don't need an explanation, it's not there yet but could/should be at some point.
