    What happened to the Grab App? It's not there in Mojave anymore?
    I used that app all the time and loved it.
    I see other "grab" type apps in the Store, but none of them say they can print. Just copy and paste sorta.
    I used to grab a selection with text, and then just print the Grab.
    Is it gone now?
    If so, can someone recommend another app that can print a selection as text???
    TIA

    Grab has been replaced by keyboard commands in Mojave. I knew this before I upgraded, so I moved the Grab app to my downloads folder so I still have it. I prefer Grab as well, so hopefully it continues to work on future macOS versions.

    My Grab app is still available, but now found in Utilities. I'm on Mojave 10-14.2 and I don't recall ever moving it so assume when I upgraded
    it was moved to the Ute folder.

    I uploaded the app here for you on my first reply. See if you can download it and use it on your system.

    It has been re-named to screenshot (utilities).

    omg so much misinformation in this thread..

    Grab has been deprecated. it's gone.

    There is a new app called "ScreenShot" that behaves they way Snippet does in Windows. A far superior app.

    Using CMD+Shift+3 will SS your current screen view. Add the app to your dock from the launcher and move on.

    Grab is awful and dead.

    It's not misinformation. I just wasn't aware of the Screenshot being an actual app. You may not like Grab, but it still serves a good purpose for those of us that are used to it.

    Preview allows screen grabs in 7 SAVE formats from the bottom of it's File menu. Much better than Grab.

    Command+Shift+5 does a lot of this functionality, no?

    The new Screenshot app is pretty nice as it has all the options right on a screen overlay. I like having Grab as well at least until I transition to the new app.
