I have this same problem. Hitting enter makes a new paragraph with an extra

line below that I do not want. I cannot seem to unjustify a short 2 word

last line...

    • The last line of a paragraph is never justified unless you have applied the

      "Distribute Text" property (Ctrl+Shift+J) instead of Justify (Ctrl+J). But

      if the "paragraph" actually ends with a line break, then the last line will

      be justified. If the problem is cured by pressing Enter, that that is

      undoubtedly the situation you have. You need to display nonprinting

      characters so you can see what you're dealing with; see
