snap-to-components

Arguments: development-configuration

Returns or sets with setf the value of the snap-to-components property of development-configuration. The current development configuration is the value of (configuration *ide-system*) (see configuration and *ide-system*). This property determines whether a widget that is being dragged on a form will snap into exact alignment with another widget whenever it is within a few pixels of being aligned. Lines are also drawn on the form to show which widgets are currently aligned during the drag when this option is used. This makes it easy to align widgets exactly when dragging them. The default value is true. See also snap-to-grid.

You can also align widgets on forms by using the arrow keys to move the selected widget by a single pixel at a time. Alignment lines will be drawn at this time as well, to tell you when an incremental move has reached exact alignment. Holding down the Alt key while pressing an arrow key will move the widget by ten pixels rather than by one, and holding down the Control key will resize the widget rather than moving it.

You can examine and change configuration options with the inspector. Choose Tools | Inspect System Data | IDE Configuration Options.
