Ignore All not working in spell check

When using the spell check, the "Ignore All" feature no longer appears to work. When spell checking a long document this is a pain and it's really easy to miss something that is actually wrong.

This seems to be a fairly recent thing as it did used to work. Using the latest version of InDesign.

    Same issue for me. "Ignore All" not working at all, making checking a long document (300+ pages) very tedious.

    I have the same issue. Long document. Paragraph styles are all set to English: UK. Did a select-all and ensure all text was also at the same language as the style (English:UK) and system language is also the same. Yet when i have a name appearing, acronym in capital letters, a hyphenated word, or a word with an n-dash ("Indo–Pacific") the ignore all doesn't work and it will go through every instance as incorrect spelling. it's a pain over a 540pp document!!!!

    Thanks for reporting this issue and we have been able to reproduce this issue with some specific documents only.
    Currently, it is under review.

    This feature now seems to be working fine for some reason even though it definitely hasn't been working for me for a while.

    I tried the mentioned steps with a very long document and it's working fine for me.
    For further investigation we need some bits of information :
    1) When you encounter this issue, quit InDesign and copy the Preferences and Cache to a shared location (like Dropbox, WeTransfer, etc.) and share the link to us or send the link to paawasth@adobe.com.
    2) Is this happening even after clearing caches and preferences? (refer - forums.adobe.com/thread/52699)
    3) Is the issue specific to the document? Or does it occur with all documents?

    InDesign CC - bang up-to-date and I have the same issue 'ignore all' in spell check certainly doesn't ignore all?
