Example in light theme:


Same example in dark theme:


If I understand correctly, customizing themes or changing the font isn't easy, therefore I made this issue. I feel that (at least on my screen) telling apart bold text from non-bold text in the dark theme is very difficult.
The easiest solution maybe (what I would use for myself if I knew how to edit themes, and if I didn't think this might be a deterrent for others as well) would be to just add some kind of light color to bold text. Maybe there are alternatives to increasing the contrast between the two somehow?
