Moving elements in Spirit

I am trying to lay out a trio of element groups on a page using Spirit. I only need to move one of the elements or groups a few pixels and not a whole column. But when I move them, they snap to the beginning of each column. Is there a setting I need to disable that will allow me to move pixel by pixel? I have tried to isolate the element in the CSS using the inspector but it doesn't seem to react at all.
