Google Docs launched a new “snap to grid” feature to make it easy to auto-align text, images, shapes, and tables within your slides. This option’s on by default, so you may’ve already used it without noticing; You can disable and re-enable through the slide context menu or the arrange menu. Also try out these handy keyboard modifiers:

[ALT] while dragging turns off the grid and gives you smooth drag (use [OPTION] on a mac)
[SHIFT] while dragging enables vertical and horizontal dragging guides
[SHIFT] while moving an object with arrow keys enables 1 pixel nudge
[SHIFT] while resizing preserves the aspect ratio of the object
[CTRL] while moving leaves the original object and drops a duplicate in the new location
