Fusion 360 On Mac

For the last year I've been using Fusion 360. Solidworks is too expensive for what I do, I haven't really liked Rhino or ViaCad, OpensCAD or FreeCAD. For the most part it works pretty good. There is however one problem I constantly encounter and that is the auto update mechanism leaves a lot to be desired. Chrome does this extremely well and I wish Autodesk would replicate their excellent system because at least once a month the Fusion 360 app either changes location in my dock or disappears completely. The disappearing completely is the biggest problem because then I have to go searching for it. Usually it lives here:

So hopefully this saves someone some time.
