Default Snapping problem (please help me fix this)

Just want to start of by saying that this forum has been an awesome tool in my music production journey. I have been able to find a solution to every problem I have encountered... until now.

Grid snapping does not work for me anymore. I recently noticed that whenever I drag a media item to a certain grid line it does not align perfectly with the grid. It is always just slightly off. I will attach some screenshots of this as well as of my snap/grid settings.

As you can see, the media item on the third track down is just slightly off. I have to zoom in to get it right on the grid. This is making arrangement a very time consuming process.

If you can please tell me how to make the snap settings more aggressive and reliable I would be so so grateful.

Try disabling "Snap relative to grid"

This is because you have the option to snap to other media items turned on. So where you have items that aren't exactly on the grid, like perhaps where you have recorded audio that needs to be trimmed back slightly to reveal the front of the wanted signal etc etc, your items are snapping to the location of those items.
