Really ? You must have 100/10 vision. I don't see any difference.

But I can say with certainty the IDE is not consistent in this regard, e.g.
the project inspector uses different spacing than the IDE Options dialog.
The only reason I saw that is because of your remark I started putting
things side by side.

Really ? I did not know all these things.

The single click was chosen because this is how it works in Atom.

Where are all these options or rules described ?

Because the IDE Tools - Options page does not contain such a setting. 
Or at least, I didn't find it.

If I select something, it's always single click. 
Project inspector, IDE Tools - Options treeview. Everywhere.
