When you want to export an artboard and its position is at, let's say 1542.2 px, that counts as a whole pixel. This is annoying when you want to have a series of designs that are a set size (for example 1000x1000) but because you have the artboards slightly off-grid they're exported as 1001x1000 or something similar.

Try set "Force pixel alignment".

And Snap to Grid does not work when creating Artboards?

This is very annoying. You have to make sure that every single artboard you duplicated via alt+drag has integer coordinates, otherwise you'll get wrong dimensions or undesired edge antialiasing on export.
I think that when the document units are pixels, artboards should ALWAYS move in integer increments. It makes no sense to have artboards that are not aligned to the pixel grid.

"Force Pixel Alignment" don't work for you?

This is fixed in the 1.9 beta, if I remember correctly.

So, from v.1.9 there will be no more of this incredibly annoying and time consuming issue?

I mean, I have the artboard and shape precisely on the grid, yet the edges are not sharp. Is this fixed in 1.9?

Install it and see for yourself. Or post the file, and one of us can look.

However, have you adjusted your Preferences, User Interface, and increased the number of decimal points displayed for "pt" measurements? If you haven't increased it to, say, 3 or more from the default of 0 you can't really be sure of the alignment you currently have.

... and "pt" isn't "px".

This is pixel aligned:

Not this:

"I mean, I have the artboard and shape precisely on the grid"
When rasterizing (exporting to pixels), the grid is irrelevant unless it is a pixel grid and thus pixel alignment.

Creating an artboard by dragging haven't made the artboard aligned to pixel grid even if the doc unit is pixel before.
In 1.9.2, artboards created by dragging is aligned to pixel grid.
