Post small fixes
Some small fixes put in just now:

- better positioning of the "number chooser" near the bottom of 10x10 and 12x12 puzzles
- and better positioning for the Killer Sudoku puzzles (it was off by quite a bit)
- remove focus of "Toggle coloured cages" button after clicking it (so you won't unintentionally
click it when you use the space bar in the puzzle)
- added "X" close button in number chooser of Killer Sudoku

(note that you can close the chooser by (1) clicking a button, (2) clicking the X (if present),
(3) clicking outside the chooser, or (4) pressing the Backspace key)

Post Re: small fixes
On Friday, someone posted the suggestion to ignore the bold on/off button
when there's nothing in a cell (in the "number chooser" that appears when
you click/touch a cell).

The post seems to have gone, but in any case, this has been implemented now,
thanks for the suggestion :-)

That was me. I thought it was not clear enough.

What I mean was to combine the bold on/off in case the cell is empty.

Open dialog -> Bold on/off (dialog remain open) + number -> Close dialog -> green cell with selected number.
In this case it is not necessary to open the dialog twice.

The first part is implemented :)
Sorry that it wasn't clear enough.

Ah, I see, that makes sense.

I'll see what I can do..

I liked that feature! I would bold empty squares (especially in the 7x7 subtraction only puzzles) to indicate that I knew the cell was even. In fact I would have preferred being able to choose multiple colors instead of just one bold color. I guess I'll have to start using the candidate option instead.

I too, really like being able to bold empty cells for bigger puzzles; I use it to cycle through number possibilities.

I'm confused now. I thought it always was impossible
to bold empty cells (?)

It definitely was possible. I'd only ever done it by accident, but I've definitely done it.

I do think it is really cool to learn how people use features in unique ways.
