Similar to what can be done in Illustrator is there a way to apply one fill to multiple selected layers with or without the hotkey, Option/CMD + Delete vs. applying the fill to each individually?

You really can't without scripting, or even an action to fill the layer with the set foreground/background color.

If I need multiple layers filled with the same color, I generally fill one via Command/CTRL / Shift + Delete, then use Command/CTRL + j to simply duplicate that layer.


smart objects. Create smart objects, clip them to the layers you want to change, and swap the original.
