This is the button that I'm hoping also has a keyboard shortcut, by the way.

Not that I'm aware of- I searched the keyboard shortcuts in CC for "swap" and "swap color" and it's not even listed as an option. I wouldn't mind Adobe adding more keyboard shortcuts for UI buttons for those who want to spend less time using the mouse.

Here's a workaround that might help: if you already have some artwork on the stage with the color you want, use the eyedropper tool (I) to pick either the line or fill color. Holding shift sets both the line and fill to the color you pick.

Thanks for the tip, though the main reason I'd like this shortcut is specifically because I don't have any artwork on the stage with the color I need.

Did you try creating a custom keyboard shortcut key?

Can a custom keyboard shortcut key be made for this function? What would this function called and where could I find it?

'Swap Colors' produces no results when searching the Keyboard Shortcuts. Should this be a feature request?

Shift X does not work for me for some reason. Is there any reason why this is?
