I found that this is one of the few times when a kanji is used that it can confuse you versus using hiragana. When using , I find myself confusing it with stem+ (かた), for some reason, even though when you see がいい, it shouldn't.

When looking through the user sentences, I noticed some that had the negative past form of a verb before が. Isn't the verb preceding がいい in a negative statement always in present-tense?

e.g., についてとてもどぎまぎだから、しなかったがいい。
The end should be: しないがいい。 Right?

Yes, you're right. the いい part can be changed to the past to refer to an opinion that happened in the past, but I don't think I've ever heard it the way that sentence is written.

I think the negative ないがいい should also be included here, couldn't find it elsewhere on the site. Not sure if both are part of N4 though, although we did study both together pretty early on.

maybe the meaning "should" should be added as well (next to the current meaning, not as a separate point) :)
