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.
Has this been resolved? I'm having the same issue in Adobe InDesign 15.0. Using English:USA Dictionary.
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.
