Is there any way to tell the designer to round widths and heights, or do a more granular method of snapping to the grid?  It is very tedious (and quite frankly, driving me nuts) trying to line up columns, panels and tables when the little triangles keep popping up telling me that my page is too wide or fields are overlapping, when for all intents and purposes, they are not.

When you are dragging textboxes into place and you aren't perfect with the mouse, it can take forever to figure out why the right border of a panel is not printing because the page width changed itself to 8.01 instead of 8 inches, because some field started at 0.01 instead of 0, or I dragged it to far to the right for a millisecond.  And even when they are exact to the designer, it can still say they overlap, and when you look at the Designer.cs code, it appears that it thinks it overlaps because a width isn't really 4.0 like it tells you, but 4.0045234235345345...

If you have any advice of how to make this problem go away, please let me know.

Johnathan, set both UnitofMeasure and SnapGridSize to the unit which you're using. For pixel perfect solution, set them to px.
