Not sure if this is an issue, but I just noticed that Snapping doesn't really work when you zoom in all the way and verify. In the screenshot below, all the red lines "snapped" to the origin lines (gray) at normal zoom, but once I go in all the way, they're off. I noticed this is happening everywhere. Would be great to have Snapping be accurate, it's really tedious to have to zoom in all the way to verify vertices are where they belong... for my type of work it matters a lot.

Thanks for all you do!

You're aware that going "in all the way" is a zoom factor of a whopping 2,000,000,000 %? :) 
420,000,000 % is about what realistically still works in Affinity for vector objects. Even that is A LOT. At that zoom I can still create vector objects sized 0.000001 mm! I can't move them with the Move tool anymore (a possible bug?) but the Node tool works, i.e. I have to select all nodes to move such "nanoobject".
Snapping at that zoom still works – which is in fact amazing – but it's necessary to turn off all unneeded snapping attributes.

Yes I'm aware. However, it claims to snap, but when you zoom in you can see it hasn't snapped accurately. What matters is accuracy.

Are you sure it wasn't snapping accurately, but to something you didn't expect it to snap to?

What Snapping options did you have active? What Candidates?

Thanks for the tips guys, my Snapping Preset was all messed up, everything was selected for some reason... I can imagine the poor app breaking it's head trying to snap to all those converging lines and objects on the page (lots more objects on the document).
