Something that is a little frustrating with Copy Shape Attributes and Paste Shape Attributes is that you can't assign a keyboard shortcut to it. When trying, I was unable to make it work. I have posted what I could get to work as an answer.

How can I create custom keyboard shortcuts for the Copy Shape Attributes & Paste Shape Attributes options in Adobe Photoshop?

To do it manually, you need to right click on a shape layer in the layers panel.

I have created an action that assigns F1+⌘+⇧ to Copy Shape Attributes and F2+⌘+⇧ to Paste Shape Attributes. I hope this is useful for a few people who would like to quickly copy all of the shape attributes.

If you happen to have Keyboard Maestro I have also included the Macro Library if you want to save your fingers from having to stretch so far.
