I just use the 'Ignore' button (for the one I know is correct). The others will still be listed. Note: Ignore does not affect variations, those must be also Ignored.
Ignore is for the session

I think I reproduced what AlanHK is saying.

* * *

Steps to Reproduce

Open attached EPUB.

1. Tools > Spellcheck > Spellcheck.

2. Make sure "Show All Words" is unchecked + sort by Word column.

3. Scroll down to the word "Texty".

4. Double-click on the word to hop to it in Code View.

5. Correct "Texty ans" to "Texans" in the code itself.

While you're there, you spot "Anoother" + "Erorr" right next to it.

Correct to "Another" + "Error".

6. Back in the Spellcheck List, click on another random word, like "Neque".

7. Change Selected Word To: Equine.

* * *

This is where AlanHK's issue is.

The Spellcheck List at Step 6 is here:

Code:
Nec      1
Neque    1 <--- Your highlight is here.
Nisi     1
Nisl     1
Nunc     2
The Spellcheck List after Step 7 is here:

Code:
Nec      1
Nisi     1
Nisl     1
Nunc     2 <--- Highlight is now here.
When you expect it to be:

Code:
Nec      1 <--- Highlight should be here.
Nisi     1
Nisl     1
Nunc     2
It seems like it's hopping down as many words as there were manual corrections.

So if you did 4 manual corrections, the highlight would hop down 4 spots.

* * *

Note: This time, check "Show All Words", then repeat the exact same steps.

After Step 7, the highlight stays in the same spot:

"Neque" -> "Nec"

No hopping bug.

You can also just do Steps 6+7 by themselves. And the highlight also goes from "Neque" -> "Nec".

The odd hopping only seems to appear when "Show All Words" is unchecked.

This is expected behaviour. When All Words are unchecked, as you fix words or ignore words using the Spellcheck Editor, they are removed from the incorrect word list on the fly and your position is kept properly.

But when you fix things by hand outside the mechanisms built into the Spellcheck Editor, the Spellcheck editor has no way of knowing you did that other than the underlying file says its contents has been modified somehow, which triggers a rebuild of the incorrect word list which now comes up with fewer incorrect words (if in front of it in the word list sort order) which makes your last position in the list incorrect.

So again, consistently using the Spellcheck Editors change or Ignore features is the best way to use it. You are making its position in the list information incorrect by going behind its back and then complaining it can not remember the next word to look at from the previous list.

If you do decide to go behind its back, then manually hitting the Refresh button and starting at the top or bottom is probably the best approach.

Even if the Spellcheck editor tried to remember the next word in the list after your current word, that may not work either as you could have fixed that one as well (or the one prior or created a new mistake or ... behind its back and it would have no place to go.

So use the tools provided in the Spellcheck Editor, and if you do fix things behind its back, be prepared to note your location to resume to or refresh and begin from the top or bottom or just jump around. It is your choice.
