Vim command line (":" in normal mode) is in black on black and overlaps Obsidian buttons

Steps to reproduce

  1. Set the iPhone in dark mode (Settings > Display & Brightness > Appearance).
  2. Use the latest (1.5.12 (134)) iOS mobile app.
  3. Make sure Obsidian uses the vim mode (in Editor, with the “:q!” answer).
  4. Open any document, in normal vim mode, so typically with a block cursor.
  5. Open the vim command line by typing “:” (column). It appears at the bottom of the screen (or just above the software keyboard, if using it).

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? Yes

There is a post on a disappearing command menu, but this is a different issue.

Expected result

Obsidian mobile used to display the command line correctly (so in light letters on a dark background).

Actual result

Characters are written in black over black, which makes entering command extremely cumbersome.

Also, when using a software (i.e. non-hardware) keyboard, the command line overlaps the bar with the usual Obsidian buttons (previous file, next file, new file, tabs, menu).
