Here's a possibly useful link on how to select & delete styles:


Let me/us know if it works.

Subject: [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

Many thanks,
