How to type in birthday-date directly instead of clicking?


i’d like to add the birthdates to my contacts.

So i choose a contact, click “add new property” and choose “Birthday”.

Now a small caledar appears und the actual date ist marked.

For a 50-years old person, now i have to click on the “<<”-Icon 50 times to get the right birth-year, because i can not type in the birthdate by keyboard directly.

Is there a “trick” how to type in the birthdate directly?
