When I Ignore or Ignore All to quiet a complaint about a spelling error, the
next time I open the document, this fact has been forgotten. Ignored words
should be stored in the document.
Also there should be a command that will eliminate either all ignored words or
all ignored words that do not appear in the document.

Well, that's how it should work. If you want to store words permanently you need to add them to your dictionary in the Options dialog.

Find & Replace should be used for that.
Essentially what I'm suggesting is a dictionary that lives in the document for the document. Other word processors have this feature. Some words are document-specific and should not be added to any dictionary that has wider scope than the document.
The "also" I'm asking for is to be able to clear out the proposed in-document dictionary

This bug was filed before the changes to Bugzilla on 2011-10-16. Thus it
started right out as NEW without ever being explicitly confirmed. The bug is
changed to state NEEDINFO for this reason. To move this bug from NEEDINFO back
to NEW please check if the bug still persists with the 3.5.0 beta1 or beta2 prereleases.
Details on how to test the 3.5.0 beta1 can be found at:
more detail on this bulk operation: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/RFC-Operation-Spamzilla-tp3607474p3607474.html
The behavior is the same in 3.5.0beta2.
Enhancement request with odf impact
And I really really doubt that something like that is needed. But I would be happy to see not normal ignore list working, see "Bug 43283 - Words which are added to the personal wordbook and ignored words are not remembered as such".
And for sure this one is not a 3.5.0 beta2 specific bug.
Rainer: "And I really really doubt that something like that is needed."
Which thing isn't needed?
isn't this already possible?
Tools -> Spelling & Grammar (make sure there is a misspelling, else dialog just closes - another bug reported for this)
Options -> New
Create a new document specific dictionary that is only active on this document.
Is this sufficient? Perhaps have an option that defines which dictionaries are used by default is needed - honestly I don't know a ton about it so will have to dig into it a bit but if you can't define what dictionaries are used by default then my above solution becomes a little less useful
The point of my report is that when you choose to "Ignore" a word that the spell checker doesn't like, that word should go into an ignore list in the document, so you don't have to ignore it every time you run the spell checker again on the same document. In other words, "Ignore" should be shorthand for "add to dictionary in the document".
I agree with Dave Yost. I do not want to have to add a word to the Dictionary in order to have Writer stop complaining that it may be mispelled.
For example, I have the word: "beatles" in lower case in one document. Writer rightfully complains that the word should be spelled: "Beatles." That's fine. But if I add it to the Dictionary in order to get rid of the red squiggly line underneath it, I may then find myself writing "beatles" in another document and not being notified of the error.
Sure - I see the point.
Confirming it as an enhancement request. Thanks for the additional info
Another use case: As an author of short SciFi stories, I use a lot of words which are in no dictionary and which I use only once or twice, so adding them to a real dictionary would be a pain.
My workaround is to create a section at the top where I collect all these words. When I open the document, I can quickly ignore them all again. But that doesn't work for the "ignore once" times (like when I want to express that someone slurs as in "shatishfacshion").
Extra UI goodies: A dialog which lists all "ignore all" words (so I can un-ignore them again) plus a search option which finds the "ignore once" words.
Aaron, right on!
