How to center justify the text in labels in MapInfo Pro

Products affected: MapInfo Pro™
Auto labels are justified based on their label position:
If the position of the label is to the left of the point (left top, left center, or left bottom) then auto labels are right justified.
If the position of the label is to the right of the point (right top, right center, right bottom) then the label is left justified. 
To get center justified auto labels, use one of the remaining positions: (center top, center center, or center bottom).

Set the label position before editing any text. Also note that one can use MapBasic command Chr$(13)
to add a carriage return so that the label expression can consist of multiple lines.

Text objects behave differently. After creating a Text object, double-click on it to edit;
the Text Object dialog gives the option of changing the text justification.
