Word 2016 is trying to get me the sack

In the new version of Word (yes I know it's 2017 and not 2016 now), the ordering of the options on the spelling and grammar checker has changed. Word now gives an example of what it thinks the problem is, suggestions of what might be better, and then beneath all of that the ignore/ignore all and add to dictionary options.

The problem is, because the list of suggestions is variable in length, the position of the ignore/ignore all and add to dictionary options moves up and down as you progress through spell/grammar checking a document (and some of mine are 400 pages lonf) . . . which means that I keep clicking on a suggestion I don't want rather than instructing Word to ignore a "thing".

Does anyone have a solution other than simply being more careful?
