The problem only appears when the theme is “adapt to system theme” and my system theme is dark (on GNOME, Fedora 38). If I pick the dark theme in Obsidian, the issue disappears.
There was a similar issue named " How to set basic black text on white background colors for PDF export when using a dark theme?" [How to set basic black text on white background colors for PDF export when using a dark theme?] but that was for the manual dark theme (which works in my case). Not sure if this is expected behaviour, if so, let me know.
