Applications button on taskbar

I tried the Applications function better and found two things that I'm not convinced about. First, the button highlighting is missing and then the drag and drop doesn't work when releasing shortcuts in an empty slot from second to last. Are these things intentional?

Personal thought: there is a lack of a way to organize all the shortcuts, such as Sort by: Name - Most Used - Last Added for example, so manually sorting all those shortcuts as desired takes a bit more time than expected. Also, since it lists all installed software, it also lists those that the user may not want to show, so those that are less used/useful to the user or already on the desktop/taskbar.
