Can users enter variable values for selection options?

We are using a cost center hierarchy variable in the selection of layouts. We are forced to select the variable from a drop-down list. Is there a way to open this field up for manual entry using the keyboard? Most of our users know the variable they want -- they would rather key this variable in with the keyboard as opposed to using the the dropdown list. User default cost centers will not work either, since most users are responsible for a large number of cost centers.

There is no standard functionality to allow users to enter variable values for the selection options in the layouts.
