I've improved the conversion algorithm, from .obj to your level. I also added a multithreading option in the preferences, which should speed it up even more if you have a multi-core machine. Days of long conversions should be over! At least, the more cores you have, the faster it should be. If you have one core, you should turn off multi-core.

Besides some cleanup here and there, I did let you use Control key, in room positions mode, to unselect a triangle if already clicked. Shift will still only append triangles to selected list.

I've been experimenting with embedded mipmaps (supported by GoldenEye/PD). The replace image sub dialog now supports them for some greyscale images, and color palettes. To do the images, you use a formula similar to example below:
For color paletted, the catch is, you must make them all have 100% identical palettes before import, and need to be named/put in folders properly. Greyscale don't have palettes, but do need to be in folders the same way.
You basically put your image in a folder (main one), name it anything. Then you make a subfolder of that name, and in there, put the main bitmap name (minus .bmp) with _LevelX.bmp, starting at 1 to number mipmaps. Mipmaps are generally width and height / 2, each level, until hit 1.
An example is, in main folder:
tempImgEd0238.bmp (40 x 32)
Then I made a folder in there, called tempImgEd0238
and in there
tempImgEd0238_Level1.bmp (20 x 16)
tempImgEd0238_Level2.bmp (10 x 8 )
tempImgEd0238_Level3.bmp (8 x 4)
tempImgEd0238_Level4.bmp (4 x 2)
tempImgEd0238_Level5.bmp (2 x 1)
And all images are the same exact palette, and order.

I've updated the Beta Grabber to show more information and be a little easier to use. It also can be launched in the beta editor by Help -> Update Beta Version.
If you don't want to regrab the whole full package, just replace the exe inside the rar below in your main editor folder.

I've finally, after many years, figured out the decompression on all the different image types of GoldenEye. For the curious:
(from 0 to 8, 0/1 and 2/3 seem identical)
"Uncompressed 0","Uncompressed 1","Huffman 2","Huffman 3","RLE","Lookup","Huffman with Lookup","RLE with Lookup","Huffman Pre-Processed"
This should let the editor decode types much better. It also supports a couple more types on import, and 32-bit bitmaps show up properly in image tools.

I've added a more comprehensive image replacement dialog in image tools. Maybe it will help make sense of the madness. Maybe.

I've spent a significant effort improving the UV Editor dialog, so it's ready now for use. There's a good amount of projections that should work. You can change the grid color in preferences. The Image editor had an issue with calculating # colors, it sometimes gave you an error message of too many colors when you really did have the right amount of colors, so that's fixed. And there are now 8 images a row, instead of 7, and it gives more useful information on the status bar.

Added another image type, this one's AI8, also known as 4/4. It means 4-bit greyscale with 4-bit alpha. It saves you from the "auto-alphaing" of the 4-bit greyscale normal type.

I've added an experimental UV editor. It should help make using the editor to manually edit UVs considerably easier. I'm open to feedback if you would like more features added, or if you encounter a bug.
Control-D: Select None
Control-A: Select All
F: Frame selected
A: Frame all
B: Hold B and click, then drag to Box Select
P: Hold P and Click to set Pivot point
R: Hold R and Drag to rotate selected
M: Hold M and Drag to move selected to centered at cursor
X: Hold X and Drag to scale both directions, (right click drag right/left only, and Middle button drag up/down only).
T:Hold T and Left click Drag to translate both directions, (right click drag right/left only, and Middle button drag up/down only).
S: Hold S and move around to change the "center" of the view
Mouse wheel up/down to zoom in/out.
When selecting, a yellow circle means Disconnected, while orange means connected (and you may want to disconnect).
Also, in visual editor, double click in room positions mode to select all connected triangles of same texture. Hold shift and repeat to do multiple.

I've added, per request, an insert multi weapon sets dialog (in the insert multi weapon right click menu), to let you choose your formation, distance, rotation, etc. It should help speed up inserts. Also some minor fixes on dialogs (occasionally would've crash if closed).
