Use Keyboard Shortcuts

In Spark for Mac, you can forget about icons and buttons using your keyboard to perform faster.

There are four sets of shortcuts available:

  • Spark preset shortcuts
  • Preset shortcuts from the Mail app
  • Preset shortcuts from Gmail
  • Custom shortcuts

You can choose from the first three, or create your own personalized set in the Custom shortcuts.


To view and manage shortcuts:

  1. Click Spark at the top left of your screen.
  2. Select Preferences > Shortcuts.
  3. Tick the shortcut set you want to use. 

Create your own shortcuts:

  1. Click Spark at the top left of your screen.
  2. Select Preferences > Shortcuts.
  3. Tick Custom Set. Here you can select an option (e.g. Snooze) and enter a shortcut for it.

Spark on iPad with a Bluetooth keyboard supports numerous shortcuts depending on the window, use them to perform faster:
