Screenshot of menu with low visibility checkboxes

Using the brush settings menu, I find the checkboxes very difficult to see. I was trying to add a texture to my brush, and couldn't figure out that I had to click the checkbox, because I couldn't see the checkbox. I've included a screenshot of the checkboxes I am talking about. In my opinion, these should be larger, and or the background color of the checkbox, should be a color, that contrasts the rest of the menu more than it currently does.

1. Open the brush settings dialog menu

I've observed this issue in versions 4.0.4 and 4.1.7, running on Windows 7, and Arch Linux, respectively.

The default theme. It is visible in the screenshot I attached.

The default theme is Krita dark, I am not sure which widget style we use on Windows, though boud doesn't compile any.

I just pushed out a couple fixes for this. It should appear in Krita 4.2, or the nightly builds if you want to check it out earlier.

This should improve the visibility for the checkboxes on the following areas:
1. Brush settings checkboxes
2. Pen sensors areas in brush editor
3. Blending mode areas (brush editor, toolbar, layers panel)
