Yes it would be reasonable to change double click action the open "old" Input
Fields dialog (rather than the Edit Fields dialog). 

But the "old" dialog (currently reached with F9_SHIFT_MOD1)  needs refactoring
that would make it suitable to task:

1.) "old" dialog's default is to now position at the start (the first
text:text-input field) in the document. Instead the dialog should open
positioned to the field with cursor focus and the double-click originates.

2.) the "old" dialog needs a Previous button action to complement the Next
button. In other words logic to allow movement in both directions through
fields of the form--currently it is one way sequential from start of form.
