Summary0003836: Some icons in selected rows are difficult to read
DescriptionSee the attachments for visual inspection. Their icons are hard to read, when the row is selected. The fix could be using a lighter icon variant when selected.

This can also happen in reverse, where selected rows are more readable than their non-selected versions.

An alternative to drawing multiple icons is to add a 1px white outline. On white background it's visually indistinguishable/invisible.

Quote from WubTheCaptain
Their icons are hard to read

The objectivity of this statement can be disputed. I could say that, looking at your screenshots, I fail to see the problem.

Regardless, this opens a can of worms where no solution short of making icon themes for several cases or forcing the whole app theme would solve the problem fully. What about light vs. dark vs. some other system themes? Also there can be visually impaired users with different forms of daltonism who will require different solutions altogether. Other visual impairments may require a high contrast theme.

Let's see:

Will this still hold true when the system uses a dark theme? What if someone's selection highlight is red? Green? Brown? Black? Or maybe a slightly lighter shade of gray than the usual white background?

Again with the dark theme, plus this statement is questionable: a 1px white outline can easily screw up the antialiasing of the icons.

I don't see this reasonably solvable without an effort that's out of the reach for this project, short of removing all icons completely. So maybe let's do nothing?
