growing block diagram objects

Recall that with objects on the Front panel, one can select and move them in very small increments by using the control arrow keys.
Is there a way on the block diagram to grow a control/indicator with that same granularity and in a similar fashion?  For example, I have  picture box that I'm inserting a bitmap into.  I want to grow the box width by a miniscule amount, but the normal way of grabbing the sizing handle and dragging it doesn't offer me the desired granularity, as it grows to the next grid line.

You can turn off the alignment grid. Tools >> Options >> Alignment Grid. You can also set it to a finer grid if you wish.

... or simply hit the letter "g" (for "grid") while resizing, and it will no longer snap to the grid during the current sizing operation.
No need to change the default behavior. 😄
(g is a toggle, so hitting it twice (or any event count) would re-enable "snap to grid")
