I use KDE and Libreoffice 22.214.171.124 and there is no way to adjust ruler color.
I have libreoffice-kde package installed (Kubuntu 14.04) so that Libreoffice can use KDE theme. Without it it looks very ugly.
I don't know if it is a matter of this package or Writer itself. Anyway, would be great to have in Writer options → appearance an option to choose user color.
Here is an example how it looks:
It really makes using ruler almost impossible.
Is there any way user can do something about it?
If not can you accept it as a feature request?

Tools > Options > Appearance > Application background, change the color to suit your preference, and then restart the application.
No. This is not the right solution.
Sorry. This one is after Writer restart. No desired effect.
(Clarifying the issue’s title)
Not limited to KDE - also a regression. See also bug added.
Why is this marked as an EasyHack? EasyHacks require developer input and code pointers. I don't see that at all here.
Setting to needsDevEval (proposed easy hack) to try to get a code pointer.
Isn't this a bug since color seems to be set to <clBlack> instead of system setting <clActiveWindowText> (or however it is called here).
Severity: minor - can slow down professional quality work but will not prevent it;
Importance: low - default for minor issues. The workaround is obviously to just not use a dark theme (I know not perfect...I like dark themes also)
The see also bug has a bibisect to at least identify where the partial regression came from (before the color of the numbers were white when using a dark theme). But from what I can tell the color of the tab stops have always been dark which I agree - makes the ruler very hard to use with a dark theme.
I still suspect that this is an easy hack so I'm going to leave needsDevEval to try to get a code pointer and maybe someone will become interested enough to look into it. Thanks all!

Can you please tell me if I can hack it myself by editing any file and how to do it?
I know you have priorities but this problem forces me to use bright themes that make my eyesight worse.
Would be good to test if this is fixed in KDE after bug 90214 has now been fixed.

LibreOffice 5.4 running on KDE 4.14.2 with a dark theme, emphasis on the visible ruler elements
Checked this with 126.96.36.199.alpha0+ on KDE 4.14.2 and the ruler markers are visible on a dark theme (check the screenshot).
I can confirm it works in
But can you push it to 5.3.1 please?
Please don't let all users wait a few months for 5.4 official release. It is important for for dark theme users.
Anyway, thank you very much for this fix.
