Font Groups data location

I'm rebuilding my system after a Windows 10 crash. I can't find the data file for my Font Groups. Does anyone know where this is?

I need to restore font group data

I had to do a clean install of Windows. Now that MainType is installed again, I would like to restore my font group data. However, if I copy all of my backed up data and vault files, it corrupts MainType. Surely there is a singe file that will restore the font groups, but which one?

Font Groups MT 4.5

My font groups in MT 4.5 are sorted alphabetically, which is how I want them. However, I recently added three new groups. These appear at the bottom of the font groups list, in the order I created them. Is there any way to get the entire list resorted alphabetically?

Custom layout as default layout

I'm using MainType 3.0. Is there any way to set Custom Layout 1 as the Default Layout? It's inconvenient to reset the layout every time I restart MainType. I believe V2 remembered this, but V3 doesn't.

Re: Loaded vs Installed

Fonts that are loaded will only remain available in Windows applications until you reboot your PC. Fonts that are installed will be available the next time you start your PC. Loading fonts is therefore useful for a special print job using fonts that are not often used. Bhikkhu, thanks for the quick...

Loaded vs Installed

Even though I have been using MainType for some time now, I'm still not clear about the difference between "Loaded" and "Installed." Can someone provide a clear and simple explanation?
