Re: small fixes
I also used the bolding of empty cells -- well, not totally empty. When there are only a couple of possibilities, I use the shift key to put my guesses in. But when there are more than 2 or 3 possibilities for a 2-cell cage, I bold the cell and THEN put two of the guesses in. For example, if a 9+ can be either 6,3 or 1,8, instead of putting 1 3 6 8 in both cells, I bold the cell and put 3 6 in one and 1 8 in the other.

I was disappointed when the bolding of "empty" cells stopped working.

Make double click 'bold on/off' the old behaviour?

Yes, I'm thinking there should be a way to have both.

For example: click bold, then close the chooser, to bold an empty cell.

Making the equal sign bold an empty cell is what I really need. It's too slow and arduous to open the chooser for almost every cell in a puzzle.

Agreed. That's the way it was working until the "fix" a couple of days ago...

Aaaaah, it has nothing to do with the 'number chooser' dialog.
On a tablet or mobile device its faster to combine it.

Re: small fixes
The equal sign doesn't bold for me, the period does.

Are you talking about the number pad equals? I'm on a laptop without a number pad, so I have no idea.

I think you've introduced another bug, however. The "-" key doesn't seem to work any more for entering negative numbers. I had to use the chooser to enter data for today's (soon to be yesterday's) 7x7 extra puzzle.

Thanks, Patrick! I can bold empty cells again!

And the - sign worked for me tonight for the 5x5 Difficult (-2 to 2)...
