Is there a way to apply the scale I see at Properties > Scene > Units > Scale in the same way scale can be applied in the Transform tools with Ctrl A, such that it begins again at a value of 1 while maintaining the object sizes?

Is there a way to increase the number of significant digits in the all of the above scale fields? There is some precision work I need to do and there are not enough significant digits in them for me to do it in one scaling.
