Studio Bug - Moving Transparent Layers with Arrow Keys

Click on specific layer in layer panel, and expect to be able to move layer on artboard using arrow keys. Instead, focus stays in layer panel and arrow keys only scroll the layer panel up and down. Whyyyyyy?!?!

This makes it impossible to move 0% opacity layers with arrow keys (since you can't click on them lol).

Please fix :)

Hi Ryan,

After testing this on our end, we can confirm that if the layer has an opacity level higher than 0%, you can use the arrow keys to move it after selecting the layer. You should also be able to do this with transparent layers by selecting the layer in the layer list, since it cannot be seen. 

However, we do see that you are unable to select the transparent layer from the canvas. That being said, I'm happy to open a ticket on your behalf to notify our Support team of this issue. In the meantime, you may select the transparent layer from the layer list as a workaround.
