[Athen] ABBYY 10 styles output problem

Good morning,
As always, we'd appreciate any feedback, and please forgive the cross posts.

We're experiencing a problem with ABBYY 10 that did not occur in ABBYY 9 (and we don't know yet about ABBYY 11).

After establishing all the parameters we always use, when the pdf file is "Read" (ocr's) into a Word doc, there are MANY, many styles identified which we cannot use. I was aware of the Heading #1 style, which is relatively easily replaced, but we're getting:
Text 1
Text 2
Text 3
And so on; one file generated as many as 16 different styles.
This makes is much more cumbersome to do a search and replace for styles.

Is there a way to "turn off" the multiple style output from ABBYY 10?
Is there a pre-OCR step we're missing?
ANY help would be great. And for those of you using ABBYY 11, is this an issue?

Many thanks,
