Was tested on Windows platform only.
Known issues(I), short info(SI) and possible workaround(PW) under the spoiler:

I: Sources icons are missing.
SI: Phos is so old theme that they simply turns into a sand...​
PW: Use default theme. This was my decision to not draw small gems. In other words: "Kann verbrennen, kann dich blenden...".​

I: Docked tab's text may clip if pane's size too small.
SI: (QTBUG-50637) At least Qt 5.15.0 needed to solve this.
PW: Resize docked pane to make the tabs text fully visible. The OBS 27.0.0 for Windows uses Qt 5.15.2 and not affected by this issue​

I: Audio and Advanced pages from the Settings has colored warnings messages at the bottom and the warning triangle sign picture is missing.
SI: This is in the code - because of long development. Usually, when you program things too long - some strange strings were written in the code and then forgotten.​
PW: Changes in the code required. I did some style overriding whenever it was possible, but this all I can do right now.​

I: When switching between the themes some part of the interface has previous color tint, for example Volume Meter ticks.
SI: Application uses custom methods to handle some UI drawing, so styles not updated.​
PW: Restart OBS Studio after new theme applied.​

I: Disabled drop-down list (for example Rescale Output) looks way different when it becomes enabled and editable. Thin or something like this.
SI: I have only guess on this. This is all about Qt that is used in OBS Studio. The QComboBox widget (editable drop-down list) consist of few elements/classes and some sub-elements doesn't inherits the state of the main widget when its state changes from disabled to enabled. They are drawn disabled (as QLineEdit) or Qt caches this style. The reverse - when widget was created "enabled", the transition: enable-disable-enable - acts normal.​
PW: No workaround found up to Qt 5.10.1. Maybe Qt bug or I did spend too much time on this stylesheet programming and thus miss obvious solution...​

I: Warning label at Settings may become clipped from above and below.
SI: (QTBUG-92381) Just Qt bug for high DPI display. Word wrapping may change number of strings but content size of the widget didn't updates.​
PW: Enlarge the window width by the mouse, until all text will fit in. All users of OBS with the Qt 5.15.2 (and probably earlier) with the high-DPI display affected. The command line key --disable-high-dpi-scaling of OBS can partially solve the issue, but it is not recommended, because the key was removed from newer releases.​

Let me know if you have better solutions of the known problems that fits the stylesheet programming.
