Select a text layer.  Then right click on that layer and "Convert to Shape".    I wish there was a shortcut for this but I can't find it in the Keyboard Shortcuts.  (Sure, I can make it an action, but I don't want to use the F keys.) 

I currently have to export a lot of svg's from text layers in Photoshop for work.  If I had a custom keyboard shortcut, it'd be a very streamlined situation.

Howdy Loren,

Try this:

Click Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts and then in that dialog choose the Type menu and drill down to Convert to Shape.  Click Add Shortcut and voilà, you can add whatever you'd like as a shortcut.

Let me know if you've any questions,
Thanks,
David

Well, thanks David!  I was suprised I couldn't find it in the Layer menu.  Thanks!   Done deal.
