(In reply to Dão Gottwald [::dao] from comment #2)
graytext is supposed to be used for disabled UI elements, where the lower contrast might be acceptable. The way we use graytext in the Control Center (and other menus) isn't quite in line with that. Given that graytext was wrongly rendered as black on macOS 10.14 until recently and from what I know nobody complained about that text in the Control Center being black, can we scale back on the use of graytext?
I agree that the Control Center text and the keyboard shortcut text should be black (or primary color in the case of dark themes).
There are cases where we are using slightly de-emphasized text to convey status or details. For example: the download status, or content blocking status (Standard, Blocking Tracking Cookies, etc.)
The download status seems to not be affect by this issue. I think it's using opacity and not the graytext keyword?
