What are some of the known limitations for the Roll20 Site dark mode?

If you enable dark mode, you won’t experience it on every page: for now, our blog and some compendium pages will have different formatting, depending on our publishers´ choice. There may sometimes be conflicts with our "What You See Is What You Get" editor on the forums and in other situations where users might copy and paste text. If you notice any issues with the compendium, rest assured that we are actively collaborating with publishers to fix them!
