The edge of the board is always one line away

Hi. I just submitted my first problem, 20775. I included only lines J through T, because that was the only part of the problem that seemed relevant. In the graphical editor, it looked fine: only including lines J through T. But when people played it, it seemed like line H was available to play, and empty. If I added stones to line H, then G became available. And so on. How can I make it look like that stuff is irrelevant?

For now I added a comment saying that lines to the left of J should be considered settled, and added a couple of stones on line H, and made options on lines G and H blocked so people can't move there, but now line F has become available.

Thanks!

One solution is to shift the problem on the left side of the board.
You can also draw a white line from H13 to H19 and a black line from G12 to G19, so that visually, it's obvious there is no more to do there.

note : Yet another example where the rectangular resize could be useful...
