I guess all I can do is to add to the growing tsunami of users that simply are unable or unwilling to use Affinity due to their choice of dark UX only. I have paid for the product and even used it a bit but there is no way I can put away Illustrator until I get a light UX mode. I always use a white background and the contrast to the menus are so great that it takes me considerable time to refocus in order to make out what the tiny icons mean. I have seen the argument for dark UXes, but they are clearly more suitable for video/photo work than for illustrations and print based work where white is the predominant color. Therefore, Affinity Designer has a bigger problem and it should be of a higher priority for Affinity to try a little harder to enable paying users to actually start using their program.
