// Please enter a detailed description of the issue // Description of the issue:

When editing Additional CSS in Preferences, the text is now displayed as black on black. You can’t see what’s there unless you select everything. Used to work just fine. Something changed.

// Please enter a list of steps required to reproduce the issue // Steps to reproduce:

  1. Select Marked 2 / Preferences.
  2. Click on the Style tab.
  3. Click on Edit CSS.
  4. Observe that all the custom CSS is now displayed as black text on a black background and is, therefore, unreadable.

After selecting the text: https://d.pr/i/5IXehy+

// If applicable please attach a sample document that causes the issue for you.
