More convenient input methods for numbers and texts

Under Consideration

I propose that if the first parameter of a tool (either built-in or custom or a macro if my proposal is accepted) is a number, or a parameter is a text, then if the user (instead of such an object) clicks on the drawing pad, a dialog pops up asking for the parameter. On the other hand, it would be easier to input a number which is not the first parameter, so a dialog is shown, if the user, alternatively to entering a value or name into the dialog, could select the parameter by clicking on an object in the algebra window or on the drawing pad. This double solution (showing the dialog and allowing mouse selection at the same time) could even be used in all occasions when a number or text is a parameter.
