RadRichTextEditor: Changing Theme causing styles text to become hard to read
When changing the theme to a dark theme the Rich text editor appears to have an issue converting the Styles tab as below. Expected to see conversion from light theme styles to dark themes styles.

Hello, Connor, 

According to the provided screenshots, indeed, the text looks blurry and difficult to read. I was able to observe such a design with FluentDark and CrystalDark themes. It comes from the dark back color of the style items.

I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public on your behalf. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

I have also updated your Telerik points.

Currently, the possible solution that I can suggest is to use the following custom implementation for the Ribbon UI and customize the back color for the style items:

        public class CustomRichTextEditorRibbonBar : RichTextEditorRibbonBar
            protected override void FillStylesGallery()
                foreach (Telerik.WinControls.UI.RichTextEditorRibbonUI.StyleGalleryItem item in galleryStyles.Items)
                    item.ForeColor = Color.Black ;
                    FillPrimitive fill = item.FindDescendant<FillPrimitive>();
                    fill.GradientStyle = GradientStyles.Solid;
                    fill.BackColor = Color.White;

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
