Is it possible to put a grid on the canvas to position objects?

Yes. On the Drawing toolbar, choose Draw | Grid and check the box for
"Display gridlines on screen."

Another question related to the canvas. How do I put a caption under it?
When I try, it seems determined to put it off to the left margin. Is the
canvas anchored somehow? On this last point, it looks like using format
layout tight with left or right helps free up movement, so I can stick the
canvas on a margin. Well, I seem to be in business. With the canvas on the
left margin, caption fit nicely under it.

A related question. If I put a figure a page ahead of this one, will the
caption (figure #) get updated? Well it did. I'm posting this anyway. :)

It seems as though canvases get anchored somehow, whereas dropping an image
into the doc doesn't.
