Poor Design Choice by Apple

Why is the “Add to Dictionary” option so close to the actual spell check corrections? So many times my hand slips, goes a little too far, and adds a misspelled word to the computer’s dictionary. Cmd + Z does not seem to undo this misstep. And the internet tells me it is quite hard to go in and change the computer’s dictionary to correct the mistake. What’s worse is that after the word is added to the dictionary the red underline indicating a mistype disappears so that you don’t know if you corrected the word or accidentally added it to the dictionary. I then have to copy and paste the word into Google to determine which of the two cases occurred since Google has a quite robust spell check feature.
