Julia 1.6 stacktrace displayed weirdly in iTerm2 with dark color scheme and transparent background

Please see the screenshots. I can hardly see some parts of each stacktrace [1], [2], [3], etc. How can I fix it? Julia versions before 1.6 have no problem.

You will need to modify/change the color scheme of your terminal emulator. What you are currently seeing as black is actually described by the ANSI standard as “bright black” or gray, but some color schemes can make it a bit hard to read.


Note that iTerm has a “minimum contrast” slider to fix theme problems:

(VS code has something similar, by the way.)


Thanks! Though using minimum contrast as pointed out by @mcabbott can make the text more visible, I find tuning the ANSI colors Bright Black directly is more flexible.
