I think the old dialog still has its value as you can simply enter the values
without all the clutter the "Edit fields" dialog has.

The old dialog is still there and appears at startup when opening a document
which has fields, e.g. the attachment on this bug.
It can also be accessed via Ctrl-Shift-F9.

I think entering values in a field is used much more often than editing a
field, so maybe changing the double click action to open the old dialog makes
sense. And by now it should be clear that in-field editing is not the best
option for many use cases.

== Suggestion: ==
As you can reach the "Edit Field" dialog via the context menu, we should change
the double click action to open the "old" dialog instead.

Would you be ok with this solution?
