I would like to have a single line paragraph that would stretch across entire page, but not with adjusted space between words, but rather character spacing. Is this possible automatically, or do I need to adjust character spacing manually?

edit: In my case, I want to use this in header, if it's possible.

Break each word into its component characters and use full justification for the last line of the paragraph

And yes: if you use fields, it's not possible. You can manually change the character spacing, but it is not possible to do so automatically.

I should have come up with this myself, that's pretty ingenious man!

You have to change character spacing explicitly to justify a paragraph. Don't take that to extremes - you still want your text to be readable.

I edited the question, maybe my use case will clarify things. I want to have a heading that will fill entire width of page, but it consists (in my case) of two words, so "justify" doesn't look well.
