I thought that I once heard that one can edit reports in the preview mode,
not in the design only. While previewing a report, it's much easier to
align, fix the widths of a column etc... Any answers??

No, that's not available. But when you make changes in the design, they are
automatically reflected in the preview without having to retrieve again.
Make sure that in the report design painter you have set the option
'Design, Options, 'Retain data to design'.
In IM7 you can have the design and preview panes open a the same time, so
there you will automatially see changes.
