Hello Vojtech

Impressive what you are able to do!!! I can't find my bugs with good 
eyes and have no idea how one would find them without seeing the code. I 
changed a few things in your file and hope, the resulting solution fits 
your needs:

- fixed rowCount of your sudoku (was 10, now 9)
- overwrote QPushButton and QSpinBox to store their index and to 
implement custom keyPressEvent behaviour
- navigate using arrows, start editing by hitting enter or return.
- change value of the spinbox using arrows, finish editing by hitting 
enter, continue navigating

I hope this helps! If you have further questions, feel free to ask again!

Merry Christmas! Aaron
