The solver could put in a black line when he is sure there is a line there, or a red line if he just wants to try one to see where it leads. You might also want to allow something like a red X between two dots, when the solver is sure there is NOT a line there.
Nice suggestion! I've improved the site, so now you can right-click on the image to add red lines. And you can remove all red lines using
the clear button. Pressing the clear button once again remove also the back lines. This helps the solver to make assumptions.

I have tried that, but this make the puzzle more difficult to solve, because there are more possibilities. Anyway, I will probably publish some puzzles with L shapes some days so that we can check this.

Here, I do not get what you mean?
Anyway, thanks for your suggestions!
