In the About Page, under the "Penpa Interface" heading, what does point #3 "It does not matter if given borders are traced or not" mean?

It means you can draw the green edge on top of a given black edge or border edge and the answer check will ignore that.

The current one (12) has really a logical step by step path or is just trial and error?

Maybe you can watch some of the solves and see if others found a path?

I dont understand the logic of the beginning. If other moves are chosen in the beginning they work fine until some moment when you realize is not correct. So for me is just trial and error.
