    Word 2010 spell checker rechecks words marked "ignore all"

    When I run the spellchecker with F7 and I press "ignore all" on certain words, the speller will again stop on some or all of the same words later when I re-run the speller. Between different episodes of running the speller, the document is not closed, only saved. I would like to not have to repeat pressing "ignore all" on the same words.



    (I have it ignore proper names since I transcribe medical dictation where there are so many similar names, and I do not want them in the custom dictionary.)

    Sorry, I don't know of any fix for the annoying spell/grammar check behavior. This tip may not be as convenient as you'd like, but...you can apply to the proper names a character style with the setting Do not check spelling or grammar.

    Thanks. Your reply is something I had not thought of, so there is hope.

    Pam's character style suggestion has other benefits too: you can change the style definition to make the tagged words more visible (for example, make them green) temporarily during the edit phases (the character style definition can easily be toggled back to the auto color for the final). Note that a character style can specify a different language (as well as no check) so this can be very handy when you are dealing with multilingual documents.

    As well, you can extract all such tagged content by using Find with Format=stylename to highlight them, then copy and paste. This is useful for creating a list of tagged terms like acronyms, foreign terms, websites, people's names etc.
