      Motivation:
      This feature is just a small tweak for component editing. Consider ExtFilter component, this component has actually only one important attribute - Filter expression. Whenever you want to edit this attribute you have to open component editor for ExtFilter component (double-click), then click on Filter expression attribute, aim and click on 'three dot' button. It is a pretty long way to open the Filter expression dialog.

      Using this feature, you can just double-click the ExtFilter component with pressed Ctrl key and the Filter expression dialog is open directly. It is like a shortcut to the most important attribute of a component. Most of the components have dedicated attribute - the most important, the most often edited attribute. We can call it primary attribute. And this attribute is available on Ctrl+double-click event.

      Note: regular component editor is open on Ctrl+double-click event for component without primary attribute

      Description

      A lot of our components has an attribute which can be called primary - for example ExtSort has 'key' attribute, Reformat has 'transform' attribute, UniversalDataReader has 'fileURL' attribute. Editors for these attributes should be easily reached by CTRL+double click on component.
