A couple suggestions: first, remove all entries containing spaces from the list, and second, alphabetize the list. Additionally, add a vertical scroll bar and key-input (to jump in the list) to the functionality.

There is "Ignore" and "Learn" in the dropdown menu when you click on a word that is flagged as misspelled.

There doesn't seem to be a way to correct a spelling and make that correction automatic. The misspelling "somethign" does not autocorrect to "something" and there doesn't seem to be a way to add that correction to the autocorrect list. So I have to manually correct it every time. Is there a reason this can't happen? Or do I have to throw each file into Word to get that?

No. As suggested previously, there's something in the manual, but also:

F12 (or File -> Options) -> Corrections. Down the left side, substitutions.

CLICK the checkbox "Enable additional substitutions"
Then click the big button "Edit Substitutions."
Click the "+" sign to add one.
Just another user.
