save it with what app? Presumably you've tried saving to somewhere quite different like a USB drive or something just as a test?

You can snap a .png of your screen with shift-apple-3. Double click on that on your desktop and it opens, you can say save as as a JPG

I think he means from the rackplanner... I always do a screenshot as well, as ndkent has suggested. Shift-Apple-3 will give you the whole screen, with Shift-Apple-4 you can select a region on the screen you want to have shot.

Hi I just noticed this thread and tried it myself. No problems that I can see in v1.3

I did make sure there was a jpg extension. I dunno if that mattered.

Command-Shift-4, then space, allows you to take a screenshot of an entire window (including the border shadow). PNG is a better format for screenshots. Why do you need JPGs?
