Here's the situation;

I'm using GIMP 2.8.x

I'm attempting to make a pressed letter effect with two layers. One 
layer is a text layer, the second layer (above the first) is a selection 
of the text from the first layer. I'm attempting to fill the selection 
on layer 2 with black and nudge it down by three pixels.

So, I have the selection filled on layer two, but I can't nudge the 
outline with the rectangle tool, and I can't used the position spinners 

First, you'll end up with a drop shadow effect if you do this.

Bump map on a blurred copy might work better.

Second, though, make sure the layer you want to move is the active one
in the Layser dialogue (control-L to show it) and use the arrow keys to
move it.

You may need to right-click in the image window and press ESCape to
dismiss the menu, to give keyboard focus back to the image.
