When adding or moving elements on a page (such as text boxes or images), I do not see a way to easily align them (center, left, right, bottom, top ....). Am I missing something or do I just continue to eyeball the alignment?

You can easily align elements on the page doing the following. 

1.  Hold down the Shift key and then click/select the elements you wish to align. This will display a blue, or yellow box around the elements so that you can see everything that is selected. 

2. After you've selected the desired elements, then look to the right side in the properties editor and you'll see the Align options like in the image below. 

 3.  Also notice just above the alignment tools, there is an option labled "Group".  After you have your  elements properly aligned and positioned on the page, you can click the "group" check-box and it locks the selected elements into a group so you can click on them an move them simultaneously instead of one at a time. 

4.  Save and publish the page when finished.
