Latest version doesn't allow "nudging" text layers. Gets error message (see screen shot).

Text layer is selected. Move Tool is chosen. Should be able to use arrow keys to adjust position of layer.

Also, this doesn't happen all the time. I haven't figured out yet why it does or doesn't give error. I exited PS after above and when I reloaded PS it no longer failed.

Which specific version are you using? "latest" could mean anything.

Hit Command-D. You have an active selection in addition to having the text layer selected. Since the pixels within the selection can't be moved until the text is rasterized - you get that warning.

Not sure but Chris is probably right. Next time it happens I'll check to see if I have a selection. If true, then updating the error message to give some clue as to the problem would be nice.

Hola Fernando,

No comprendo muy bien el problema que tu encontraste.  Puedes explicarlo mas claro?  CNTRL+D es, par ejemplo, para deseleccionar y nunca para mover una selección.  Yo quisiera ayudarte. 

Gracias,
David
