MacOS Dark Mode

Are we ever likely to see a Dark Mode that doesn't generate difficult to read graphics like this...

The blue is bad enough but black on dark grey (lines 3 & 4) is nearly impossible to read.

It's great on Windows lolol

To be fair, I don't think light mode is that great on either platform. Ever since somebody decided colour wasn't an important part of icon identification AC has been visually painful to use.

In Attribute Manager, it is even worse, since the introduction of Dark Mode.
@GS: Please nail this nasty bug. Thanks.

As my Q. didn't raise a response at the User Group Seminar I'll share it here...

 

@GRAPHISOFT 

The MacOS UI graphics are a mess & in places difficult to use. Dark Mode graphics issues have been reported multiple times over the last three years and the lack of action reflects badly on the software. When can we expect an interface that doesn’t include black text on dark grey background etc?

 

And please don’t blame resources, we were switched from bitmap to monochrome vector icons quick enough in AC20 - 2016.

Can you post example screenshots of this?

@Laszlo Nagy  Here's a few that require improvement. There's probably others in dialogs I don't normally use...
