Spell checker in InDesign CC2018 (13.0) has lost its mind
InDesign spell check is randomly not recognising everyday words and when I acknowledge it by clicking Ignore All or Skip, it stops again on the very next word to report an Uncapitalised Sentence. This is happening whether I have the Dictionary set to Proximity or Hunspell.
I cannot find a pattern other than that, but I have now experienced it on ten different InDesign documents. It is very annoying, but I am also left to wonder whether it is actually missing other words that might actually need correction?? PLEASE HELP.
Somewhere in dhe web I found that CC offers or even recommends new spell checkers or hyphenation in German: Duden. When I changed from CS6 (Poximity and Hunspell) to CC (Duden), I had crashes for many days, while I worked on a book with many sections, each packed as "InDesign directory". For the book I habe a specific "Userwordbook" , but I found also., that the spellchecker is higly unrelayable, stopps while many unchecked errors ahead etc.
It has stopped working altogether for me.

Hi, I am having the same issue, it just doesn't want to spell check anything properly. I am using the English Dictionary and it is not picking up really obvious words like "acheiving" or "addititional" or " capabilitites ". This is unacceptable.

Yes, I too am purposely misspelling words and realizing the same thing... only after a client pointed it out. Quite embarrassing! Everyone knows creatives are not the best spellers, but PLEASE Adobe! We pay a lot for these programs. Fix Indesign spell check!

I am having this same exact issue. I just noticed it today. Any word on a fix? Running InDesign 13.0.1 using English USA Hunsfill dictionary. Also occasionally crashes InDesign when I open spell check. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Is this related to another issue? https://indesign.uservoice.com/forums/601180-adobe-indesign-bugs/suggestions/32569186-hunspell-dictionaries-cannot-be-added-in-sierra-or
I am trying to use both the English Canadian or English US dictionaries, and the spell checker is not working. EVERY single word in "unknown", it won't actually spell check.
