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!

Dark mode. This is bright enough to kill all vampires within view of my monitor.

Bloody ****, what are you guys thinking? Do you really think we are asking for dark mode because we are all emo kids? No, we need it because it is hurting our **** eyes and causing actual eye strain and fatigue. Realize that we have to stare at this bright UI for hours on ends, if not days on ends.

This is the only app in my dev toolkit that is not darkmode compatible, it's an eyesore, please fix it.

We need dark mode, we have to spend a lot of time on this software, many of us on very large monitor, at least let us decide

I cant event read the data in Focus Mode (Show data) in table view. Power Bi picked a nearly white color font where I cannot read the values. I dont see an option to change this. Very frustrating.
