After a bit more experimentation, it would appear that if you draw an object it is pixel perfect and snaps accurately.
But if you save the object as a symbol to reuse (I made my own image placeholder for example) then the little blue points are sometimes placed outside the edges which makes it impossible to use snapping with symbols - as FW snaps to the blue points and not the edges of the object.
Is anyone else experiencing this? Kind of renders symbols useless if you require accuracy - hope I'm wrong though.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Which template did you pull the image placeholder from? I know at least one of them is a little screwy, based on how it's been built.
You might want to try John Dunning's placeholder extension instead:
Thanks for that - just saw his site and his tools so will look at those now.
Do you know if there's a way to get smart guides (or any kind of snapping) working properly with symbols?
Generally Smart Guides work fine, but as I said, at least one of those symbols is a little screwy. If you're scaling the shape, try disabling the Scale Strokes and Effects setting in the Preferences panel. That might help.
