Invisible font problem

invisible font problem

It's been a while that i am using sway and I have found that with default theming there are some problems in visibility of the fonts , some times I have noticed that some fonts in GUI messages for e.g. like this :
2022-01-23T16:08:42,314250168+05:30

the messages written there were not as visible as it is visible in this picture the colour of fonts sometimes were grey instead of white, so for fixing it first I tried to change the theming then i changed the default font :

The problem was solved through it .
I don't know what helped to solve it , whether it was a theming problem or default font problem , I don't know whether it was a problem with my machine only, but this can be a problem for new comers that should be solved .

(sorry for reporting this so late :sweat_smile: actually It's my first WM experience and before tweaking it I searched a lot and in this process I almost forgot for what I was actually tweaking it)
