paragraph?

Best way: Define a paragraph style that includes the Justified
paragraph alignment, and apply that style to whatever text should be
justified.

Quick'n'dirty way: With the paragraph(s) selected, press Ctrl+J. This
is equivalent to going to the Format > Paragraph dialog and choosing
the Justified alignment.

That's what the Justify command (Ctrl+J) does. If the last line of a
"paragraph" is being justified, then it probably ends in a line break rather
than a paragraph break, as often happens with text pasted from the Web.
Display nonprinting characters to confirm this.
