Hi Alessio,

The location of where an object snaps to will be determine by what the drop target is and how you set up the drop target options. You'll find directions here on how to set it up. 

Tile - will drop on top of your target so that just the corner edge is showing, kind of like fanning out a deck of cards.

Stack Random - will have the object appear on the target, but in no particular location.

Stack offset - will have the object appear on top of the target, offset just to the right a bit

Free - will place the object on top of the target wherever the user lets it go

Snap to center - place the center of the object over the center of the target

Whatever you select will apply to all the items on that slide. There is not an option that will force the drag items to not overlap.
