a) After opening the full minimap overlay, allow the player to click on their current room to display a preview of it in its original state. Currently, if you're stuck half way through a room and are unsure if you screwed something up earlier it feels needlessly clunky to exit playing and open up the restore menu in order to check without losing your current progress.

b) Allow the player to right-click a room on the minimap to display a preview of it in the opposite of its current solved state. This hasn't actually come up for me but with the inclusion of seeding beacons it seems like it would be a helpful inclusion for multi-room puzzles.

I approve, mostly. My only concern here is with b: right-clicking should only work for seeing solved state from an unsolved state if the player in question has actually seen the room in the solved state before (i.e., has ever cleared+exited the room), in case this causes some kind of spoilers.
