Improve snapping strength
Currently, there is a "snap to point" feature in illustrator. However, I find that it works poorly. Often, I create guides, create geometric shapes on those guides, and move them overlap, join, or intersect to make new shapes. Currently, when I create a shape, I notice the shape will snap to a guide, but when I zoom in all the way, it will not be exact. Also, when I try to move two shapes together, I will experience the snapping effect, but it often is not lined up when I zoom in.
Is it possible to improve the snapping to guide and shape tolerance so that things line up without so much manual effort?
Here are some images for reference:

When you zoom in super close, you can see that objects don't all snap to both guids or other objects: https://www.evernote.com/l/AGoxlmBQlRFNT5C_VO3SAVBIPQ_3Pk2Nbmw

I feel like the solution could be an increase in the snappyness - so that it's stronger. Currently I use a wacom pen and I find I have to waste time doing everything manually to ensure things line up.
you really should improve and snap and alignments. Really disappointing for a geometric vector design program. Consider that other software like Corel Draw, Affinity Design, the good old freehand this thing works much better, even free software inkscape works better.
Beyond "align to point" you should also make align, and intercept alone the curvature of the vectors, as "hook to object" of freehand. If external plug-ins like those of the Institute or other external scripts are able to implement these functions, to the great I would say, I wonder why mom never ADOBE can not? Do not you want to do it? can not do it? where is the problem? or does not want to rage against Astute ??
it is shameful for a software leader in the field as Illustrator that boasts 30 years, in my opinion NOT honored service that piti of many gaps like this and also slowdowns and a lot of machineness in working. Freehand was very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very well.

simply make snap like it is in InDesign, which works perfectly.
