White Balance Temp. Question

On my EX3, I can't seem to manually change the Kelvin Temp of the white balance like I could on my Canon XH-A1- even in the direct menu. For example, I sometimes I like to set a number like 3500k for indoors.
Any EX shooters able to set their own WB numbers?

It's in the Picture Profile menu setup.

The White Balance has 3 options. Preset, A, B

A and B are set using the White Balance button.
The Preset is set using the Picture Profile menu. You can set the color temp there.

James, I had no luck finding a temp control under that menu. I even tried the direct menu. It just shows profiles, not white balance settings. I just want to manually dial in a Kelvin number for white balance under "preset". Am I missing something?

Its under White > Preset White in the Picture Profile menus.

Range is from 2100 to 10000 default being 3200
