make the "ignore" actually work. Add a "permanently ignore" feature for grammar errors and spelling mistakes.
Sometimes you'd have a word that is new to word and you'll have to add it to the dictionary even though it doesn't need to. E.g.: I'd have a peculiar African Name in my doc and it would come out as a typo and i would not want to put the name in my dictionary since it doesn't mean anything.
Or sometimes i would make some grammatical mistakes that are completely deliberate and i would want word to ignore them but it would only do it for a while and when i open that doc the next time, it would have the blue underline again.
So please add a "Permanently Ignore" feature for such things.
I am completely frustrated that, after telling Word 2016 to ignore the spelling of a word that is the way I want it, I am presented with the same word in the same place next time I open that file.
I added an acronym we use to the dictionary but it comes up now as a grammatical error.

Isn't permanently ignore the same as adding the word to the custom dictionary?
Yes, please! This happens to me constantly, that the grammar check flags something that is not, in fact, an error in this particular case. I hit "ignore", but a few minutes later it flags it again. It doesn't save that information even when the document is still open, much less when I close it and open it again later.

Yes, please. Add to Dictionary technically accomplishes the same thing, but it would be nice to only ignore a "mistake or misspelling within that one document, permanently.
