When using the dark theme, text in emails is less legible. Something is ‘off’ with the font smoothing for the text that makes it look worse than the light mode version. The text in the UI is fine; it’s just text in the email itself that has the issue.
See screenshot of light mode: https://d.sb/2021/03/mailspring_01-13.24.59.png vs the same email in dark mode: https://d.sb/2021/03/mailspring_01-13.25.30.png. Compare the text directly above the “Go to Node” button in the email vs the UI text (subject line / sender / recipient) at the top of the screenshot.
Steps to reproduce the behavior:
- Use Windows
- Switch to dark mode theme
- View an email
Nice font rendering
- OS and Version: Windows 10, version 20H2
- Installation Method: Windows Installer
- Mailspring Version: 1.8.0
