Description Tim Chambers 2021-06-03 07:05:06 UTC
Low contrast between text being spellchecked and the background of the text in the spell checker when using dark mode in pop!_OS

Steps to Reproduce:
0. System theme on Pop!_OS set to the default Settings->Apeparance->Appearance->Dark
1.Tools->Options->Personalization: Default view, do not use themes, then OK
2.Open a document with spelling that is not recognised in the spell checker
3.Run a spell check (F7)

Actual Results:
The text displayed in the spell check window is black on a dark grey background and is hard to read due to the lack of contrast. Text for buttons and other info in the window is light grey and easy to read

Expected Results:
The text displayed against the dark background should be light, or the background should be light with the text dark.

Reproducible: Always

Suggested fix - the text colour and background for sample text and suggestions in the spellcheck window should match the document settings.
