    On osx Sierra apple added a new feature that is when you move a window close to another it will stick the edges together (sorry about my crappy English I don't know how to describe this but I think you get the idea), which is so annoying since you cant adjust the windows location until you drag the cursor a significant distance. And I cannot find out how to turn this off on system preferences. Is there a terminal command or something that allows me to turn it off? apple really thinks its users are idiot and doesn't give any options to change many system settings.

    I think in the beta you could disable this mechanism temporarily by pressing the option key while dragging.

    Just tested it out it still works. But is there a permanent way to do it?

    Not that I know and I cannot currently investigate. However, such global UI settings are kept in a hidden preference. You could paste the output of the following command here and maybe something turns up.
    Code:
    defaults read -g

    Just make sure you sanitise the output by removing personal details, if present.
