Bug Description

I do not know if it's really a bug but it's nonsensical.

Double click on a symbol,the "Symbol properties" window opens, click on "reset field properties".
The properties are restored but the window closes. What if I wanted to change something else?

It's a bit unnerving as well, as you don't get to see the changes it made.

The "correct" fix here is to collapse the Reset Field Properties and Update Field Values into a single button with a beefed-up dialog (and to also have said dialog available in the menus to apply to more than one symbol, a la pcbnew's Update Footprints...).
