Scroll Office Formatting issues

When exporting to word using scroll office, if the confluence text does not include a heading 1, the export creates it anyway, converting all the heading 2's to 1. I have turned the flag for "Merge single, first heading and page title" on ond off, this hasn't made a difference. Is there anything else I can do to stop this happening? Confluence 5.4.4 and Scroll Office 3.0.10
