It is very hard to arrange items pixel-perfectly, for example when using the cool SnagIt auto-fill move.

Solution: Support SHIFT-drag to lock either x or y axis.

If you hold the Ctrl Key and use the arrows it moves at smaller increments.

All other graphic apps on the planet support <shift> to constrain a move along X- or Y-axis. Voted yes.
