It is possible for the global shortcuts in the dedicated GUI.

Is it possible for the custom shortcuts too?

A similar option as above is not present in the KDE4 GUI for custom shortcuts.

But I imagine there must be some file to back-up.

    check the file ~/.kde/share/config/kglobalshortcutsrc there are different sections, and the [khotkeys] one might be what you are searching for. It should then just be a matter of changing said file to your likings. – Fiximan Feb 15 '16 at 15:15
  • @Fiximan - it looks like the custom keys can be saved as groups; see my answer for details; but you should post comment as an answer or even better edit mine to add yours, so then I'll have a more complete answer to set as definitive. I have found all my custom actions as you said in ~/.kde/share/config/kglobalshortcutsrc. If you prefer I can edit my answer myself and just give credit to your comment. – user32012 Feb 15 '16 at 15:18

The custom shortcuts seem not to be saved as an overall scheme, but as separate groups of shortcuts.

In the Custom Shortcuts window select Edit - New group, if you don't have one or more already.

Check to enable the group and then drag&drop the shortcuts you already have onto the group.

To save a group, right click on it and export:
