Changing Paragraph Style in R6

Is it possible to change paragraph style using the new R6 Rich Text LotusScript classes? I am trying to programmatically change the alignment of rich text fields from "left" to "center", and it seems that this is not possible, although it is very easy to change text style (font size, etc). Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Here an example for ALIGN_CENTER:

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Set db = session.Currentdatabase
Dim doc As New NotesDocument(db)
Call doc.AppendItemValue("From", session.Username)
Call doc.AppendItemValue("subject", _
"Meeting agenda")
Dim rtpStyle As NotesrichTextParagraphStyle
Set rtpStyle = session.CreateRichTextParagraphStyle
Dim richText As New NotesRichTextItem(doc, "Body")
rtpStyle.Alignment = ALIGN_CENTER
Call richText.AppendParagraphStyle(rtpStyle)
Call richText.AppendText("Where are we now")
Call richText.AppendText (" and where do we go from here.")
Messagebox rtpStyle.Alignment
Call doc.Save(True, False)

Well, I had already seen that in the documentation. However, I need to *change* paragraph style in existing rich text fields, not to create a new one. As a matter of fact, the above example would even work under R5.

I read on Notes.net that this is not possible. Thanks anyway.
