Create valid text in LaTex at libre office

I am writing my dissertation at the moment.
I am using Libre Office instead of LaTex - stupid I know!
But at this time there is no way to switch to LaTex, so I have to deal with it ...

I want all the text to be justified ... But if I do it with a justified button in Libre Office Writer, it looks very ugly.

LaTex seems to have a better algorithm for this ...
If there are only 5 words in a line, now it looks like

and                  this                 is               not             good


I know this only happens if it's a line. If I use a new paragraph, it works great! But if I just press SHIFT + ENTER to write on the next line, I have this bad looking text ...

But I want it to look nice and sleek.

Is there a better way to do this with Libre Office? Any plugins? The version I'm using at the moment: LibreOffice 3.4.4 OOO340m1 (Build: 402)

Or do I just need to avoid single line breaks without a paragraph?

(hope this is correct on Stack Overflow)

You can set this to: Tools - Options - LibreOffice Writer - Compatibility

According to libreoffices documentation :

Expand word space on lines with manual line breaks in justified paragraphs

If enabled, Writer adds word spacing on lines ending with Shift + Enter in justified paragraphs. If disabled, the spacing between words will not expand to justify the lines. This option is enabled by default for .odt text documents. It will be saved and loaded by the document in .odt text document format. This option cannot be preserved in old .sxw text documents, so this option is disabled for .sxw text documents.
