I normally use Super+number to open my frequently used applications which are pinned to the launcher, which is quick and convenient as long as the numbers remain consistent. However, when I run other applications, some (not all) of them are added above the last pinned application, meaning my customary Super+n shortcut for that application no longer works.

Is there any way to force other applications to be added to the launcher below all my pinned applications?

Don't know if it will work, but you can try moving items around in the launcher. To move a launcher icon Click and hold it, drag it to the right away from the launcher and then to the spot in the launcher you want. You can try dragging non-pinned program icons to the bottom this way and see if they take for next time. – James Mar 13 '12 at 23:28
I have already tried manually reordering. It works for the current session, but doesn't "stick" for subsequent logins. – jpd Mar 13 '12 at 23:55
I believe it is a bug as it doesn't happen for me on 11.10. Follow up on @aleprovencio link to the bug report. – James Mar 15 '12 at 21:58

Maybe this is what you're looking for:

A workaround is to keep a "last pinned app" which will not maintain its order, but will prevent messing with your other pinned apps.

Thanks for the link. I didn't think to check launchpad. – jpd Mar 16 '12 at 21:04
