Cell color text

I really like how each mode name is color-coded by cell color in the beta. But a lot of darker colors are kinda hard to read against the dark grey UI background, in the mode selector dropdowns. Could these be made to stand out better, maybe with a contrasting background color based on mode color?

I agree, it's hard too read dark coloured mode like black or dark blue.

Glad, others think so too! I've suggested that to Petter early on. Maybe this will raise the priority :)

Another way would be to use the dropdown's background color as the indicator, and let the text be white or black to contrast. Here's a mockup of what I have in mind:

Dunno if that is even possible, but it looks cool, and is highly readable :-)
