Change the grid.

Use grid snapping (hold x while moving UVs).

Change how UVs snap when moved.

Double-click the Move tool to open its options panel.

Use the Retain Component Spacing option to control how UVs snap:

When off, all selected UVs will snap to the same point.

When on, selected UVs will keep their positions relative to each other as they move.

Snap UVs to pixels when moved.
