Fine control for external monitor position?

For now when I grab an external then move it, it snaps to first monitor and move vertically by big steps (approximately 64), how can we get fine control over that position ? for example, moving vertically by 1 step ?

It seems modifying

        "pos": {
            "x": 1280,
            "y": 30
        },

inside ~/.local/share/kscreen/ files, then logout and relogin is the only solution.

That’s correct; there’s currently no GUI way to disable snapping and move monitors by individual pixels at a time.

See 355119 – Allow exactly positioning screens according to individual pixels and 348241 – Option to not snap displays to each other

Editing the config files manually the way you’ve already discovered is the way to do this until those features are implemented.
