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!

It's absolutely hilarious that this has not been fixed.

Could at least have one black layout to the Power Bi to minimize this issue

Dark mode all round please. Same skin as Office 365 would be great.

I agree with Rankovski. That's all we need. Shouldn't be too complicated to achieve.

Query editor in particular would benefit from this

I think that focus mode should use the same background color as the "Page Background" color where the visual is placed. We don't need anything more complicated than that.

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).
