I don't know if it's too late to change anything, and I can't remember if this was mentioned before, but a big disappointment for me is the continued existence of those menus to select monsters with: it's a real pain to select it from a menu when you could have a big visual picker like the terrain one, and menus are a general pain.
It would be nice to have the selector in a floating window or something as well.
Also, the outdoor section selector annoys me, having that numerical input when it would make more sense to select it from a grid.
Of course, I'm probably too late :(

Whelp, the source code was included, so, if you wanted to mangle a version of the BoA Scenario Editor of your own using C, you could make one which included a visual picker for the monsters and items yourself.

There probably should be a movement to add some improvements to the editor -- but let's wait until Jeff most of the bugs out of the main program first.
Personally, I want a tool that allows me to click on a square and tell me the x,y coordinates of that square. Relying on this "center square" stuff is annoying.

Don't bother waiting - Jeff will implement any changes in both versions equally.
