Are you using a linear or relative layout? A relative layout has more of a drag and drop feel but can be more difficult to alter in xml. Liner layouts are more structured I find but easier to manage in xml, it's usually a personal preference with each individual. Make sure your views don't have the property layout_gravity="center" otherwise they will always be centered.
I would highly recommend trying combinations using the xml code as you can see clearly what you want each view to behave like. I personally find the graphical layout and UI too cumbersome for most tasks and is only good for getting a general feel for your layout.
