By default, The Ctrl key suppresses any snapping behavior when you move a widget. You can also configure
it to only use snapping when the Ctrl key is pressed.
If you suppress the snapping behavior, widget layout should behave like null layout. You can then use the Ctrl key selectively to create widget attachments (or just use the popup attachment menus on each widget side).
If you have a widget (A) that is already attached to another widget (B), widget (A) will move, if you move (B). Once you attach one widget to another, that relationship stays in effect until you unattach them.
BTW, you can reset the attachments for one or more widgets by selecting them and using the Layout Assistant to have then attach themselves to the upper left corner.
