When using a dark-designed theme, styles with automatic color are properly previewed in the Styles and Formatting pane regardless of the pane dark background. However, once the text is set to a dark color manually (like 80% gray) they become invisible / unreadable on the pane.
Considering that the color combination is valid on the virtual paper on screen, and thus, usable, they should be visible too on the pane.
Same thing happens when inverting the colors: with regular Adwaita and a dark page with text set to 10% gray: the styles on the pane become almost invisible.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install the Adwaita-Dark theme and activate it in the system.
2. Create a new LibreOffice Writer document.
3. Open the Styles and Formatting pane. Observe that the pane has a dark background but the text is bright-colored despite being --correctly-- black in the document itself. This is because text color is set to "automatic".
4. Right click on the Default Paragraph Style and choose Modify.
5. On the Font Effects tab, set the text color to 80% gray (or something dark like that).
Style previews are unreadable because of lack of contrast.
Style previews should be readable just like in the page (dark text over white background).
User Profile Reset: No
Suggestion: previews for styles without a fixed background should be painted in the same background as... the current page?
- Turn "show previews" off.
- When the font is set to automatic, text in the on-screen paper is painted black and text in the style previews is painted light-gray (or white?)

Octavio, unfortunately nobody could confirm this bug report for half a year. So I'd like to ask, if it is still valid. Could you please try to reproduce it with the latest version of LibreOffice from https://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/ ? I have set the bug's status to 'NEEDINFO'. Please change it back to 'UNCONFIRMED' if the bug is still present in the latest version.
Dear Octavio Alvarez,

tracker maintenance, if the bug is still in NEEDINFO status with
no change in 30 days the QA team will close the bug as INSUFFICIENTDATA
due to lack of needed information.
For more information about our NEEDINFO policy please read the

If you have already provided the requested information, please
mark the bug as UNCONFIRMED so that the QA team knows that the
bug is ready to be confirmed.
Thank you for helping us make LibreOffice even better for everyone!
Issue is still present: when the system is in dark mode, if a style has its font color set to dark gray with no background specified, the style will be unreadable on the Styles and Formatting pane because the pane will have a dark background, despite the Writer page being white.
