I have lists that I want to be lined up like this.
But I don't always want them to be directly centered. I want flexibility to put them wherever I want. Many programs have an option where you can just drag the object or text and It will automatically align it and show you the spacing. How can I do that In Premiere Pro?

Go to Window > Essential Graphics and select Edit. Select the text layers and play around with the Align and Transform options.
Look for Align Left to align the text layers to the left.
But, this will not work for images. For that and all of the abowe i mostly use After Effects.
I cosign on the fact that aligning and centering visual compositions with text and images is done in After Effects the easiest. What you're trying to do in premiere isn't really what the software is meant to do. So you're going to have to use quirky workarounds, when it's a couple of easy clicks in After Effects.
Essential Graphics sucks. No where near After effects. If we were to shuffle every now and then between AE and PP, dynamic link starts sucking. If AE allowed multiple objects in a single layer, and also transistions, I would never come back to premiere.
All my options disappear as soon as I multi-select tracks, even if the tracks have exactly the same text/graphics elements on them. I believe the align and transform tools will only work if you're working on one track, meaning any other effects are not possible, you'll have to have all your text on one track.
Yeah I have the same issue. Please can anyone help. As soon as i click multiple texts , all the options in Essential graphics disappears.
Just don't use it. You cannot align images or clips (including subsequences) with it, so it's completely useless outside of aligning a singular text box at a time.
For the tools to work the graphics have to be in the same Graphic Element clip thingy.
If you want to add another text, shape, graphic layer to that element, then make sure it's highlited in the timeline before clicking with your tool in the program window.
You can also, drag images and video (but not audio) from your Project Panal into the layers of your Essential Graphics Panal.
This will let you use the aline and center tools how you are imaguning.
Have you checked out 22.4? You can now distribute objects on the Program Monitor by moving text or shapes so that their edges are equally distant from each other. Let me know if it works for you.
