I am creating a cup and a plate in blender 2.8, and I have such an issue. While I'm grabbing a face of a vertex of the plate it immediately attaches to the closest part of the cup from my vewpoint. The same happens when I'm moving the whole olate in Edit Mode. While being in Object mode, those two objects move together, although I triend to Unparent them and to separate from relation. I tried to demonstrate the issue below, thank you for help in advance! enter image description here enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ You have snapping (left from proportional editing mode) active, as you mentioned already proportional editing should not affect objects when moved in object mode. I would still recommend to deactivate it if not needed, can cause a lot issues if forgotten. $\endgroup$

You have snapping turned on in the screenshot. How does it act when you turn it off? It is the horseshoe magnet at the top of the screen if you don't know
