How do I turn off "snap-to" in Google Drawings?

I have a ton of shapes with snapped lines to other shapes, and every time I need to rearrange shapes or drag a line elsewhere or want a line to end at a specific location, its large radius for snapping causes unwanted behavior.

This type of action is generally performed with pressing of SHIFT key or CTRL or both
CTRL + SHIFT across most major platforms where snapping needs to be cased in order to finetune the position of an object.


In view -> snap to, the values can either be grid, guides or null. Clicking on a 'ticked' value will untick it to null and allow movement to any position with no snapping.
