Snapping 2 objects together in Sketch 3


Question

I am trying to use Sketch 3 to create some SVG icons. One of the big reasons I am using SVG icons is the ability to have multiple color however to do that, the SVG must be multiple shapes. The issues I am running into is that I can seem to snap together so I always end up with something like this:

Is there anyway in Sketch 3 to be able to snap together 2 points of 2 different objects?

Here is my approach. I think the best way to snap objects is snap point in Edit mode. Let me show:

  1. Here two objects I want to snap, you can see a little gap between them:

  1. Select one object, triangle in my case, press Edit mode in toolbar menu. Now shape is in editing mode, select upper point and check position of it:

  1. Select rect and activate Edit mode. Make rects upper left point position same as triangles upper point position:

  1. Apply these actions to lower points:
