Problem in alignment of text in CorelDraw

I use CorelDraw to design brochures. Sometimes i face a problem when I have to justify the alignment of the text.
Suppose i have to give a heading of just one word and the matter follows in next few lines or a para. Now I need to align the matter in the para, if I do full alignment or force full alignment the result is same, the matter as well as heading spreads.
To solve this problem anyway, I put a full stop (dot) in the end of the line where the heading is, to prevent the heading by spreading, but i have to hide the full stop(dot) in the background.
I feel what I need is full alignment and not the force full alignment, where even if there is one word in a line it should not spread.
Any suggestion ?

Other than use another program? ;-) There ARE much better tools for doing text heavy brochures. Other, more appropriate tools won't do what you described.

Besides that, headings should be totally SEPARATE from the body text, not in the same paragraph with it. Then you can set the alignment however you need to.

But seriously, if you're doing many brochures, look into something more fitted to doing them. A real layout program, like PageMaker, InDesign, QuarkXpress, or even Publisher (or even Word, if it comes to that) allow you to set up styles for your text, so that it's much easier to ensure consistence from one paragraph to the next. They also allow you to break up stories and maintain the connection between the separate blocks of text, so that a change in one place doesn't mean you have to redo the entire document to fix the section breaks.

I use Pagemaker also for text rich brochures, No doubts it gives us better text handling features, but sometimes I want to use Coreldraw to design brochures where I have to design a lot of art work which I can do in CorelDraw very esily, where we can preserve the quality of the finer details of the drawings.

Well, I use Corel in my work but I haven't your problem, spreading the line happen only if I didn't press ENTER
with Full Align.

You shouldn't have any problem with using the drawings in PageMaker. I suspect you're saving them from Corel as TIF or some other bitmapped format, then resizing them. Don't. Export them as EPS, and the output should be as good as from Corel. Of course, you'll need a postscript printer to print them.

If you don't have a postscript printer, export them as WMF, which is also a vector format and should give good results from any printer.
