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.
