I purchased Pixelmator 2 from the Mac App store. The app appeared in Launchpad, but not in my applications folder. The problem is that I don't use Launchpad.

I can't find where Pixelmator is actually installed on my hard disk, and I want to move it into my applications folder.

How do I move it from Launchpad to the Applications folder?
