When working on a project, there are usually quite a few terms, etc., I want to skip at spell-cheking but to not want to add to my general spell-check dictionary.

"Ignore All" is unfortunately reset when I have to reopen the file; and it cannot be shared between files.

So, can I set to which dictionary I add with "Add" button of the spell-checker? If yes, how?

I am not sure, but I think if you press add in tagEditor, the word goes to the default custom dictionary set in Word (Options>Grammer and spelling>custom dictionaries). There you can create a custom dictionary dedicated to TagEditor and set it as the default before TagEditing. You probably can uncheck it in Word when you finish TagEditing.
It may be worth a try.
As regards spellchecking, I was much happier with the built-in spellchecker there was in 5.5. With 6.5, there is no choice. Word often crashes when I close it (there is a loading in Word when you open TagEditor) or I have to CtrlAltSuppr to terminate Winword and reopen it to work in it. I don't know if it is my Word configuration, but I didn't have these annoyances with WinterTree... and you could add words in a file separate from Word.

Have fun,
