    Not sure if this has always been this way but used Grab today on my 2015 rMBP and the quality of the grab was pretty poor. Previously on my iMac running 10.10 the grab would look identical to the screen, no artifacts. Can someone confirm/test this?

    This screenshot was taken using Grab on a rMBP, but is not in Retina resolution. Strange. Must be a bug in this beta.

    Good thing I normally use the keyboard shortcuts and not Grab anyway.

    Grab on Yosemite saves in Retina resolution, as well as the keyboard shortcuts, so it's probably a bug.

    I recommend agains using Grab. It it a very basic utility that doesn't seem to have been updated in years and is still unable to support any other image format but Tiff. The keyboard shortcuts are the preferred way to do it.
