>From "Entering figured bass":

    Accidentals (including naturals) may be used for modifying scale
    steps.  These are entered by appending ‘+’ (for sharps), ‘-’ (for
    flats) or ‘!’ (for naturals) after the number.  For double
    accidentals the modifier is applied twice.  For the modification of
    the third step the number is often omitted, which can be achieved by
    using ‘_’ instead of a number.

So blanking entries is done by entering _ instead of a number.
