Why use Grab?

One must wonder why you are using Grab at all, why not just hit cmd-shift-4 ?

Even better: if you want to take a screenshot of a window, menu, or the dock, do command-shift-4 and hit the spacebar. It will highlight in blue the object under the mouse. Just click, and it will save the screenshot to your desktop.

Why use Grab?
Authored by: Frederico on Mar 18, '03 05:42:09PM

Grab allows you to select formats other than PDF. For this reason alone, Grab retains some degree of usefulness.

While we're on this subject, is anyone else pissed off at Apple for continuing to change and dictate to us how we will use Finder screen captures? In this case, I am referring to the new behavior (as of 10.2.4) that now splits a multiple-monitor screenshot into individual pages in a PDF document. A total PITA to try to paste back together into a usable form.

Sometimes I just want to fly into Cupertino First Class just so I can invade the NeXTie stronghold and whack them all repeatedly with a rubber chicken until they understand that Macolytes demand flexiblity, not rigidity.
