I've tried out the beta, but I've run into a few issues that I am not sure if are addressed in the full version. I'd like to ask if they are:

1. I can't make anything round in a dungeon. No matter how I try it, I get squares. I can't seem to make non-squares at all, in fact.

2. I'm not entirely clear on how to delete walls from a dungeon. When I place a room and a hallway, they have solid walls. Is there a way to remove those WITHOUT adding a door?

Welcome and thank you for the questions!

1. On this, you can change the tool you are using to be a different shape (round, polygon or line based) from the tool settings at the top

2. In most of the maps we've done as samples we normally use the close area or corridor tools for the outside and the wall tool for the inside, so the gaps are created by not having a wall from a stand alone tool.

So, you can't create openings in walls yet, but that's something that will be added soon (as well as the option to have the door open).

Let me know if you have any other questions
