When Windows 10 is set to a High Contrast theme, text will show as black with a black background when opening a new Impress project. This makes editing and creating new text impossible.
However, if you go to Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice & click the "Application Colors" option... a short pause will occur & magically all the text in the Impress slides will turn to white & be readable.
I need to do that workaround every time I open Impress to work with the application. It appears as if Impress isn't properly detecting High Contrast mode & updating the text colors until I select "Application Colors" from within the Options menu.
LibreOffce is setup to detect High Contrast / Accessibility in options.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable High Contrast mode in Windows 10
2. Open a new Impress Document
3. Try to add some text -- it will be black on black (unable to see)
4. Go to Tools > Options > LibreOffice > Application Colors
5. Watch text magically become white & readable
The text becomes white as expected, after initially being black (the bug that needs fixing).
Text should be readable on application start. High Contrast mode should be detected & black on black should be fixed on application start -- not requiring selecting "Application Colors" in the Options menu.
User Profile Reset: Yes, and it made the problem worse. The workaround "Application Colors" didn't help, because I presume "Detect Accessibility" was unchecked or perhaps "Use Automatic Colors" was different.

Repro already in 4.4, but not in 3.5. Maybe I should try to bibisect later.
For testers: to enable High contrast, search for High contrast in the menu in Win 10.

=> NAB but duping to bug 112739
Setting is found with the Accessibility settings. To avoid the workaround, and use the HighContrast DE settings in LibreOffice:
Open Tools -> Options -> Accessibility and in the Options for High Contrast Appearance block, check the "Automatically detect high contrast mode of operating system" AND/OR the "Use automatic font color for screen display"
That will pick up the colors from the HC themes.
