Is there a control key I can press/hold (in SnagIt) while I am dragging an object that will keep the object on a vertical or horizontal track while I drag? Such as Shift-drag or Control-drag?

No, but if an object is selected you can hold down the arrow keys to move it in a straight line.
If you hold down the Shift key along with theĀ  the arrow keys, the object will move more slowly.
If you tap the arrow keys, the object will move several pixels at one time.
If you tap the arrow keys whole holding down shift, the object will move one pixel at a time.
