Bug with insert section widget

This a bug I have noticed in previous dev versions (1.2.xx) and it seems to still be there in the release candidate (1.2.1330). When using Cmd+Shift+R to insert a new code section, if the editor is a light theme the text is white in the widget's text box, so the user can't really see what they are typing.

This isn't really attached to the Insert Section logic, but it is attached to the text input widget. The same behavior happens when creating a New Folder or any other action that trigger that text input widget when the editor has a light theme. I'm using Solarized Light, but know it also occurs in Tomorrow and Katzenmilch

Thank you for the bug report! We're tracking this issue here: https://github.com/rstudio/rstudio/issues/4497

In particular, the issue manifests when one uses a light IDE theme with a dark macOS theme. While we do plan to fix this, a workaround for now is to either:

  1. Revert back to a light macOS theme;
  2. Use a dark editor theme to activate the dark RStudio theme.
