Welcome to Peter Grainge's Site

Since I started this site, it has grown like Topsy. When I first started posting answers to posts in the Adobe RoboHelp forums, I found myself repeating previously provided answers. It seemed more sensible to write more complete answers here rather than just providing a minimal reply on the forum. I also needed somewhere to post content for family and friends.

What does it cover?

I have grouped the menu into areas of specific interest.


Contains the topics for technical authors covering general authoring related topics. There are also some macros for Word users.

RoboHelp Contains topics specific to RoboHelp.
RoboHelp Tour Links to a RoboHelp output that describes what has been added and changed in each release of RoboHelp.
Snippets This is not about the Snippets feature in RoboHelp. It is about useful snippets of information not requiring a whole topic but none the less useful.


This page is mainly for family and friends but some of it will be of general interest, such as the accounts and pictures of holidays in various parts of the world.


Site Changes

27 Feb 2017 - I have removed a number of pages that related to older versions of RoboHelp and I have removed some of the snippets, either for the same reason or because they were no longer correct.

I have also made a couple of changes to the style sheet so that the margins you see on a desktop screen do not take up space on a tablet or smartphone. That said, this site is best viewed on a desktop.


If you find the information on this site useful and it helps improve the quality of your work, please consider making a small donation.


This table covers only this topic, not the whole site.
