Cosmetic bug, but with significant impact: 
When using Windows Darkmode and Default Scrivener colours, some menu options are "invisible"

Steps to reproduce: 
Change to Windows Dark Mode
Open Scrivener with the default skin
Observe how most of the menu options appear in white and so are almost impossible to read. The only way to read them is to highlight them, which creates enough contrast that the text is readable.

Can you please upload a screenshot of your desktop including the Scrivener window. Try switching Scrivener to dark mode too.

I run Windows Dark Mode all the time and run Scrinver in default theme, for now. I have not seen this.

Besides a screen cap
In the taskbar on Windows type WinVER and hit enter.
There is version number to Windows 10
Most should be on 1809 or 1903. Make sure you include that number as Microsoft has been tweaking its darkmode over the last few updates.
BTW I I just updated to Win 10 1909. Which goes into general release next week.
