Proofing error loop/ Microsoft Word 2010

Word 2010
I have written a novel (165,000 words). Text is completed. Word and grammar has been proofed. The pages are clean (error free). For many words and sentences, because of there structure in 'natural' conversation and additional spacing, I had to press 'ignore' or 'ignore all.' No problems until recently. The red and blue lines under many words have returned under the SAME words I cleaned up earlier. The document will stay 'clean' for one or two fresh openings, but by the third opening the errors return. It takes three hours to clean up the document because of the length. How do I prevent my work from reverting back to uncorrected 'proofing errors' once I clean it up again? How do I get it to STAY CLEAN? Thanks, Dale

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

click on the file tab go to options > proofing go all the way down to the bottom where it says exceptions for. Choose the document you don’t want corrected  and check hide spelling errors and hide grammar errors in this document only.

    You may need to set up exceptions like mentioned above. Another thing is certain word may need to be added to a custom dictionary so it will ignore them in the future. If you right click right click a red underlined word you can select add to dictionary. Once there it will not show this as an error on future documents.
