Description slawek 2013-08-15 21:37:31 UTC
When pointing out with mouse cursor on layer i layer docker, after a short time preview and information about this layer pops out. Problem is that it is very light grey on white background - very hard to read if at all. I added a screenshot that illustrates the problem. Also in dark theme - shouldn't the background be dark as well - it is very hard on eyes if that giant, white square suddenly appears.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Point to the layer in layer docker, wait till information appears
Actual Results:  
Window with information pops out but its content is very hard to read. Also in dark theme it is white which hardly can be named as neutral.

Expected Results:  
Toned down window appears - ideally its colors are consistent with theme - and information on layer is easily readable (contrast between letters and background is bigger).

Thanks for the report! Definitely confirmed.

Interestingly, it's really windows-only. With the same style (plastique) the color is correct on Linux.

Remove setPalette call

The tooltip palette is correct by itself, and calling this breaks the
theme color on Windows
