Position and size snapping is too loose/granular

Right now, moving and resizing boxes snaps to other items on the canvas, which is expected, but the snapping increments feel quite quite arbitrary or too small… They require quite a bit of work to align and boxes to the same width/padding/alignment, even with the grid and alignment tools.

If all the elements fit on a grid with large increments (e.g. 5 px, maybe even on the canvas dot grid), then it would be a lot easier to visually organize elements together without busy work. It would also help with the visual noise of dot grid and the elements laying on top of it.
