Some buttons (e.g. "OK" in Preferences) have black text on a dark blue button surface. That's hard to read.
=> Can the button surface be lighter, or the text be white instead?

The default for OSX apps is to switch to white text when a button or dropdown toolbar is selected, which is clearer than black on gradient blue.
Would be good to get a screenshot of how back this looks.

It would be interesting to know if it is possible to have a per button label color as it seems that the label color is a single setting for all buttons from the screenshots.

From an OS user prefs level, the blue colour is attributed to buttons, windows, and menus as a whole, and there doesn't appear to be any finer-grained setting such as the one you indicate above (unless this is hidden in the general OS UI API). I would assume that the inverted font colour is also a standardized, i.e. non-customizable property as well. On the whole apps are expected to respect the Apple HIG (which LO clearly does not), so perhaps there is no provision for "messing about" with such a setting. It would need someone with OSX UI programming experience to find out, I guess.
I see this issue is marked as applying to all Mac OS X versions. However, versions of OS X prior to 2014 actually used a slightly different UI, and LibreOffice's buttons look correct with it. (See, for example, the "New features in LibreOffice 5.1" videos, apparently made on OS X 10.8 or 10.9.) This is only a bug with versions since 2014. Is there a way to more precisely mark which systems are affected?
I am currently running the following while observing this issue:
- Libre Office 188.8.131.52
- Macos 10.11.3
Could the graphics driver, or graphics card be the culprit?

That's an interesting question. I'm inclined to doubt it, though. Wouldn't every other application be utilizing the same thing?
I feel certain this one is easy to fix for a very significant benefit. Somewhere in LibreOffice's code it specifies that the text of buttons <i>must</i> be black, and removing those lines will let the color follow the default system UI. The question is, where are those lines of code?

Ok button from prefs comes from src/hrc. I wonder if only these are concerned.
Anyway, even if it's the case, I don't know where the color is defined for them.
