Home Screen Icons Rearrange Selves After Marshmallow

I just got the Marshmallow OTA update, and now I can't properly arrange the icons under the standard Xperia launcher.

 

Previously, you could long-tap and move them around easily to whatever space you chose - simple drag-and-drop. Now, every time I move one the others, including spaces, move around them and shuffle everything up. I just can't get my icons laid out how I want them.

 

I can't find a setting to fix this and it's driving me insane. Can anyone offer a solution?

@Anatosuchus Tap longer on the screen, select home settings. There, you should have automatically place icons together, enable that.

 

Does this change anything?
