You can do this now, I think. This is Display Min and Max on the first page of Design Properties. Let me know if this isn't what you're looking for.

yup that is what I was missing.
excellent, check the box if this answer is the right one, please... thanks!
The problem I'm having relates to the grainularity for the Display Min/Max.  It looks like its fine up to max of 128, then it shows a few random numbers.  It would be nice to be able to set a specific maximum number if it does not exist in the scroll wheel.  For instance, I have a tempo sysex command which have a range of 0-300.  I have really no way to correlate this to a control value unless I do some math in my head on the fly (like set the max to 100, then multiply the number by 3 to get the tempo I need)
I got into this a bit for 1.3.8 (so at least display max now goes to 250 with one-unit granularity) but I'll apparently have to get into it more in the very near future. What are your ticks, min and max set to that you get "a few random numbers?' Thx!
BTW I hear you re "nice to be able to set a specific maximum number if it does not exist in the scroll wheel." I'll probably retool most of the scroll wheels to allow that, or start using more sliders like those I have for, say, NRPN 14-bit min-max-default. Just thinking out loud here :)
numbers 250 and 999, which might not be too random, just random to me :)
Whew, okay, I thought you meant in performance mode. Yes, in design mode you are given these random (well, "arbitrary") choices which are not too helpful. These are the relatively undercontemplated parts of the app. So for the record, if the by-one increases got up to 300, you'd be able to handle the current problem?
Yep - for the current tempo issue.  I think your retooling idea would be a broader solution for same types of issues.
