Strg + F2 Functions Tab Add Input Fields Store as Template Open new from this template -> Modal Input Dialogs are shown for the Input Fields At first sight, this is a nice feature. The problem is: It prevents API programming, for Input Fields are the only fields that can be used to write text to fields via API, without consuming the fields. This feature breaks existing code, for Input Fields are the recommended procedure to fill text into fields. -> Please remove this feature or switch it off by default and make it configurable on a per-document basis.

I do not quite understand your problem. You can use "show only" fields for this purpose. Insert > Fields > Other > Variables, and "User Field" (left column). Am I missing something?
