Ability to turn off "Snap" in Camtasia

Sometimes when I'm arranging annotations, like shapes - or just resizing media on the canvas - I can't get the precise adjustments I need if the element is too close to another edge, as it will "snap" into place beyond my intended adjustment.

I think it would be useful to turn off snap temporarily when you need it.

At least for me me, the Ctrl key only gives you control over the timeline snapping, It doesn't seem to do anything for the canvas snapping.

LOL, someone shared this today and I thought others on this particular thread would get a kick out of it. Hopefully the animation works...

Camtasia 9 has the ability to turn this off: view -->  "Enable Canvas Snapping". Or just Ctrl+;

One important thing is missing: It should be accessible via the CTRL key. But dragging clips on the canvas while holding CTRL does not disable snapping temporarily as it does on the time time. I hope this inconsistency can be fixed soon.

I created an idea for it:

On Windows I can use the arrow keys on the keyboard to fine tune the placement. I too would like to see the CTRL-drag option added to Windows as that feels more intuitive.
