Default LeanFT installation location on Mac

LeanFT is installed by default in /Applications/LeanFT

After installation, you can move the installation folder to another location if you need to, in which case, you must define a system variable called LEANFT_HOME that points to the new location.

Tip: If you move the installation to <users>/Applications/LeanFT, you do not need to define the LEANFT_HOME system variable.
