Pre-install edits of Preferences

Is there any way to edit file within spark to change the default Preferences. Meaning I want to install spark onto a user’s computer and default settings we want to set will be there instead of me manually editing each computer.


Within the Chat tab – Uncheck “show time in chat window”

Within the Login tab – Time till idle (min): 20

Within the Login tab – Uncheck “Idle enabled”


Within the Spellchecker tab – Check off “Enable Spellchecking”


Spark’s settings are mostly stored in C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Spark\spark.properties file (windows layout is in layout.properties, there are also separate files for flashing and spellchecker). You can copy and already prepared profile (without the login information) to new installations.
