When using OS X Mojave's Dark Mode, MySQL Workbench is unusable, due to white text being displayed on a white background, and similar issues throughout the app. It seems that certain UI elements have hardcoded colors, rather than using system colors.

How to repeat:
Enable Dark Mode, then open MySQL Workbench.

Suggested fix:
Take a look at how you are setting colors in the app.
