QOwnNotes still uses dark grey icons despite me running a dark system theme #1177
First up, thank you for QOwnNotes. This software looks great and I'm looking forward to digging in to it much deeper :)
QOwnNotes should use suitable (i.e. light) icons when I use a dark theme for my system. Perhaps it should provide a setting so that I can specify that I'm running a dark system theme. I don't want to use QOwnNotes' in-built dark mode, nor should I have to.

After a bit more digging it seems that if I switch my system icons to something other than Breeze Dark (which is what I normally use), save, then switch back to Breeze Dark and save again, QOwnNotes displays nice white icons. But this only lasts until I restart QOwnNotes, after which the app reverts back to the dark grey icons in my original screenshot.
This behaviour doesn't seem to apply to just the Arc Dark theme. Breeze Dark (the theme) does the same thing (white icons persist only until the app is restarted).
