Screenshot of the editor

The following line renders an editor with black background and black text on UWP, black theme. Text color is set correctly on Android.

<Editor TextColor="White" Text="{Binding Feedback, Mode=TwoWay}" />

This occurs with code as well (e.g. new Entry { TextColor = Color.White, BackgroundColor = Color.Black }).
Comment 2 Rui Marinho 2017-05-26 11:44:26 UTC
Should be fixed on 2.3.6-pre1
