Apply a rule-based style to a layer
In the layer tree, click either a symbol or a value: it opens the symbol selector dialog. While this behavior is coherent with graduated or categorized symbology, i wonder if in this case (at least when clicking the value), it should open the "Edit rule" dialog, offering options to edit the rule and the symbol.
I think this was the earlier behavior (since 2.8) as stated in QGIS docs https://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/user_manual/working_with_vector/vector_properties.html#rule-based-rendering

Affected: 2.18 and master

This has never been normal behaviour - I believe the earlier user manual was referring to the rule based tree, not the layer tree.
