Holding down the control key while you are moving/resizing will disable the snapping. You have to have the object selected before you hold down the control key or you will get the 'right click' menu popping up.
Thanks for the idea. It doesn't seem to work though. Whether I select
the object, press CTRL, then resize or drag, or first press CTRL, then
select and drag, or drag and then press CTRL, in no case is snapping
Are you sure this is working for you?
I'm using a Mac and it definitely works, but I've done a bit of reading and found that it doesn't seem to be available for Windows users. Sorry for the misdirection.
