I had to do this recently. How would I easily move the square with texture on the ground to snap align to the square frame group floating in the air? I did get it down to one move and three rotate actions, but wondered if there was a quicker way, with or without an extension.

Fave a face in the floating rectangle and set the component to “glue to any” so there is no need to play with axis.

This is overkill:
