I find the box that appears when I move an object to be quite tricky to position correctly (especially when the actual image is very small as the grid remains the same size as the comp). Ive seen that its possible to see the actual image (ie, text) but im not sure how to switch this option on.

I'm sure this has been asked time and time again but I couldn't find the answer I was after.

Is there an option somewhere or is it automatically decided due to amount of RAM I have?

Thanks for any help anyone can provide (and apologies if this is a silly question!)

Not to worry, you simply have Live Update turned off. There's info at this link that tells you how to toggle it on & off:
