Downloaded the latest AppImage and was modifying a sketcher constraint when the dialog popped up looking like this:

Likely the issue should be reported against the System76 Pop GTK+ Theme:

https://github.com/pop-os/gtk-theme

Some solutions:
  • You could add the PPA and install/update the theme to the latest version. To see if the issue was already resolved. Note that from the PPA they provide some other packages. And therefore if you want to update only the theme you will likely need to take care of that manually (apt). And after to remove the PPA.
  • Use different Linux theme not having such issues.
  • Set and use one of the FreeCAD Stylesheets from FreeCAD preferences.
  • Create and set a minimal FreeCAD stylesheet, that will provide better styling for such Qt widgets.

Note that i tested it and the theme related package on the PPA is the same as the one provided by default. Therefore this is a current issue with System76 Pop GTK+ Theme.

P.S. Feel free to report it to them if you would like to get it fixed.
