How to align and/or center parts ?

I am having a hard time wrapping my head around how Onshape wants me to align parts with one another.
Just simple things, like, lets say I have two rectangles, of different sizes, but I want to center them with each other on a certain direction.
Like align them side by side, centered. Or maybe one above the other, but centered.
I guess same goes with, what if I wanted one above the other, but aligned with each other on their left sides, instead of centered?
I see the Mate tool mentioned, but I cant seem to figure out how to use that at all.
Besides, the two P want to align, I may not want actually touching each other, I just need them aligned.
