Colors lack contrast and custom colors aren't rendered properly.

I'm using the format feature to color my branches and noticed that they aren't rendered with the chosen color. As you can see inside the white rectangle, the color comparison shows they are displayed darker.

This makes the dark skin harder to read as colors don't pop as much.

Note that the light skin and legacy GUI also modify colors, in the other direction this time, which also goes against contrast and readability. Dark skin should have light bright colors and vice versa.

This is also true for the builtin colors : the green merge arrows for example are a slightly darker tint of their legacy counterpart. While readable, the current color scheme looks washed out instead of vivid.


Built in colors should be flipped so they contrast with their background. Custom colors chosen by the users shouldn't be modified.
