Subduded text on MacBook Pro M1

I bought a new MacBook Pro M1 a month ago. I'm glad that Timelime works just fine on Big Sur on the new Apple Silicon processor. However, I have a small bug to report. Using the macOS Light Appearance some lines are subdued. Using the Dark Appearance different lines are diminished as you can see in my screen shots.

Thank you Niko for keeping Timeline alive and well.

    Hi Tomas,

    I’m happy to hear that you are a Timelime user still!!

    Can you please check if the wrong colors for the timing’s text is only after switching between light and dark mode. Or do they appear right after changing to the “Timings” view as well?
    I’m asking because on the screenshots you sent, it looks like the wrong text color is coming from not properly switching all colors to dark/light mode.

    Thanks for reporting,

    I’ve been a happy user of Timelime since October 2014.

    The wrong colors appear when I switch from light to dark and viceversa.

    If I quit Timelime and start again, the colors are right.

    Thank you

    Wow, nice!:)

    I think this problem is possibly fixed by the recent Timelime for Mac update from two days ago (version 1.7.4).
    I made some changes in code concerning this after I got your report last week.
    Can you please check if the colors are fixed.

    Thank you,

    The colors are fixed with your latest release.

    Thank you Niko!
