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!

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

The lack of specific formatting options for the focus mode is embarrassing for Power BI.

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

Having a dark mode especially on the creator UI when putting things together would be helpful, similar to other MSFT apps (Azure, Office 2016, etc).

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

This is quite literally broken - and it hasn't been acknowledged in almost six months? My users will want to be able to focus in for myriad reasons, which means that any dark-themed reports with light text is actually unreadable...thus rendering focus mode entirely useless or forcing developers to only use dark-on-light colour schemes. For such a powerful offering, there really are some embarrassingly deficient aspects.

Please develop this feature because the focus mode is useless when I create dark themed BIs.

Agree!
I use a dark color page background, so most of text on visual is white,
if i use focus mode, it will totally invisible...

Would be nice if we could determine focus mode color
