Oh come on, you are really making things simpler than they are. Either a
dialog is really redundant, then it should be removed. Or a dialog is
useful and even necessary for certain important tasks. Then we can not
only make it available by pressing some obscure modifier key. It would
be more or less undiscoverable and we had effectively removed an
important feature.

We will have to stay with the current solution until we have found other
ways to provide the functionality.

The dialog saves you the extra step of filling the layer. In my opinion
it is very useful and speeds up the workflow. After all the user just
needs to press the Enter key to acknowledge the last used settings.
