New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.

This request is on our roadmap, but we don't have timelines to share yet. We'll update this idea when there are more details to share. Thank you!

Please, this light mode is disturbing take us back (at least as optional) the dark mode!
For now, it's a pain working with this app.

Please provide dark mode as an option. It's too hard on the eyes in a dark room while developing the dashboards and just doesn't seem like a good design option. Most of the development tools provide a neutral background option in shades of grey whereas you guys chose this option of bright white. Please give dark mode as an option.

Very hard to see the delineation between various menus in the side bar without the contrast that dark mode provides. Example - in Report view, the Visualizations, Filters and Drillthrough menus all blend together at a glance.

Please add an option for dark mode. Also, I miss the yellow highlight for which tables was used in a visual. The new small round circle with a check mark is too similar to the check mark for the column and measure thus making it harder to navigate in large data sets.

Somebody didn't do their usability testing did they? Sorry but the new colors are not modern or user friendly. It's just horrible. Please give us dark mode.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

The new color scheme is painful to the eyes, especially for those of us who use Power BI all day. Changing the default app mode in Windows 10 to "dark" does not change this either. Please, this is ridiculous. The new look is the exact opposite of "much more modern" as you described it.
