On site builder I could highlight text in a text box and center the content and the rest of the text would remain left aligned. Same with text size. I am finding in websitebuilder that any change I make to any of the text affects all the text in the same box whether it's highlighted or not.
I'd like to be able to center title content and left align descriptive content within the same text box. Can I do that?

I do notice that I can bold specific text if highlighted which does not change the non-highlighted text to bold.

Another text box issue I am noticing. In mobile view I seem to be unable to insert an html box within a text box. In desktop that's working fine.

First image is desktop view, second image is mobile view. Any way to resolve this? 
This was not an issue in sitebuilder for me. Just need the website builder fixes for these questions, please.

Hello Nora
I would recommend using one text box for your Title, and one for the Body. It will work better in mobile and it will allow you to center and left align different text.
You cannot have overlapping elements in mobile, there are limitations in what you can do in the mobile editor vs the desktop. I would use separate text boxes for this as well. One for the text above the button, one for the text below it.

Thank you, Elizabeth. I played around with it all and came to those conclusions myself :)

One other question, Elizabeth (for now that is),
Can I copy a text box on one page and then paste it onto another page? I see the duplicate option, but that copies it to the same page. I seem not to be able to ctrl C it. I can ctrl C an image from one page to another.

Correct, that is not an option with the text boxes. A work around would be to set the text box to show on all pages in "Size and Position" settings, and duplicate it on the pages you need it on. Then you can remove the "Show on all pages" setting.
