snap to grid
The grid is helpful, but it would be much better if we could snap the upper-left corner of an asset to the nearest intersection of two grid lines. This would make precise alignment of two assets with the same size and shape much quicker and easier.

As long as you could turn this feature on and off. Snap-to's are great until you are trying to fine tune the placement of an object. Then they become magnetic pains.

Essential feature in a modern graphical app, but even more so for animation apps. Lining objects up precisely is absolutely necessary for smooth animations. The grid is not a real substitute. Anyone coming from tools like Hype, Keynote, Screenflow, Pixelmator (actually, most graphical apps on Mac) will expect this for layouts and will be disappointed not to find it. Ideally snap could be adjusted as on these other tools with coarse and fine movements controlled by modifier keys.

Really need this, expecially trying to align text boxes and graphics that are consistent with previous frames.

I agree. Snapping to grid or some sort of visual representation of automatic lines that pop up to help you to easily see whether you have objects centered or properly aligned as you would like them to be (angled or straight).
