: : Could someone show me how to place a string at a given point (say at the centre) in a line of Rich Edit without using #9.
: The simplest way to do this is to select the line by setting SelStart and SelLength. Then change the TextAttributes to match what you want to have. I don't have Delphi here, so I cannot provide you with code, but you can find more info (including the precise property names) on these in the help files.
RichEdit1.Paragraph.Alignment := taCenter;
