Current version: 21.4.3
System Requirements are here.
- We addressed an issue where the FMCore running on macOS 11 would disconnect from application plug-ins if the computer went to sleep. [FS-7670]
- Suitcase Fusion and its auto-activation plug-ins are ready for Apple M1 systems.
- We addressed an issue where Suitcase Fusion could crash. [FS-7649]

For any tracked document, you can gather the document, the fonts that the document uses, and any linked documents and images together into a folder.
This allows you to gather documents and resources for distribution, which is especially useful if the document’s application does not have its own “collect” feature.
