I have loaded a richedit component with lines from a text file.  I would like to center the first line and put a tab in front of the third line.  I've been searching for hours and can't find any good info on using the richedit component.  It would be great if anyone could also direct me to some good info on using richedit.
Thanks.

After loading

with RichEdit1 do begin
        SelStart:=0;
        SelLength:=Length(Lines[0]); //select 1st line
        Paragraph.Alignment:=taCenter;//for current selection
        Lines[2]:=#9+Lines[2];//#9 - Tab character
        SelLength:=0;  //remove selection
end;
