Selecting title layer in group doesn't work. Even when i hold down the CMD key.

There seems to be a problem with selecting the title layer. I'm working in Sketch version 39.1. Normally you hold down the CMD key while clicking on the object. I suspect the transparent Rectangle to be the issue but I can see in the video that it works? My problem is that I keep selecting the transparent rectangle because it is the top layer?

See video around 16:00 where he is renaming the text layer from Wake Up to Ate Breakfast.

Hey! I know this is late, but in case it helps anyone else: make sure your transparent rectangle layer is pulled beneath all of the title and subtitle layers. With the text on top, you can select and edit it.
