USER STORY: I want to align a dragged object quickly relative to other objects
SUGGESTION: Applications like InDesign or draw.io display guides and snap depended on other objects around the dragged object. So if there is an object left to the one I drag and both are roughly top aligned a guide will appear between these two and the drag will snap slightly if both are aligned.
- The align objects functions or a numerical specification archive the same results, but are more cumbersome to use, since they demand multiple switches of interaction mode instead of blending into the dragging process.
- the display guides around dragged object option helps visually, however, it does not provide snapping and is visually intrusive.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to align two object relative to each other (e.g. at the same distance from the left)

This request has been asked for in bug 100141 regarding visual alignment and spacing guides (would suggest to hi-jack this ticket in case the snapping aspect is not covered well enough).
Remark: There are plenty of alignment tools that can be used, but you are likely aware of them.

Yes, that seems to be the same issue, the lined video in bug 100141 shows what I mean.
