In Options > LibreOffice > Application Colors > Scheme, you can tell the app to use the "LibreOffice Dark" color scheme, which is great, except that the comments in Writer look wrong as they still float on a light gray background. They should be on some color that is either slightly darker or slightly lighter than the "Document background" #333333 color.

In Windows, version 7.3 it looks good.
I would advise you to specify your LibO version, and DE so that it can verified by someone else.

Screenshot on Linux

Here's how it looks in Linux. It uses a darker gray when you set the "LibreOffice Dark" color scheme.

Based on previous screenshots by other users, as well as this one, I'm closing this ticket as NAB.

Comment 6 Jeff Fortin Tam 2022-11-08 13:16:30 UTC
For the record: it happened in 7.2, but version 7.4 is no longer affected or Linux+GTK3, so indeed it was solved.
