With 6.x double click on an input field will now open the input field dialog.
Great thing to have! Thanks a lot!
One thing would make it even better:
Whenever you double-click you generally intend to change the value within the input-field. So it would be great if the existing content would be selected as default [as it was with the old input-field dialog].
At the moment you will have to double-click the content to start editing.
It would be great if this could be implemented.
+1 from me :-)

Tested on 6.2 on linux.
All the content of the field is selected after double-click, so you can easily modify or delete the field.
