Not Able to Precisely Move Anchors

Tried to slice the first image and it was a bit off. Zoomed in real close and wanted to line up the edge of the slice frame precisely with the image.

Cannot get Illustrator to do this. When I drag the slice frame onto the image by mouse and release the mouse button it just pops back to where it was before. When I use the arrow keys, it jumps too far.

Trying to set it precisely with x and y coordinates is also not working. The edge of the image is at x: 240px, the slice frame at x: 239.5px. When I set it to x: 240px it just ignores it and pops back to 239.5px. The next step I am able to make is from 239.5 to 240.5.

Why am I only able to make 1px steps instead of 0.5px or 0.1px steps?

Kind Regards, Florian
