Sketch dimension entry window changed?

Why was the sketch entry window changed in SW 2016? It slows me down when I am dimensioning my sketch.

This is the window I used to get. I can still get it but I have to double click on the dimension.

This is the window I get by default now. The dimension is already highlighted when you single click on it.

When editing a dimension, sometimes you don't want to just type in a new number. Maybe I will add to it instead. But to do it you have to click on the dimension, then click again to position your cursor at the end and then do a +.02 to change it if I wanted to add .020".

 

I would much rather use the pop-up box to enter or edit dimensions.
