I would like to know if dash supports rearranging the categories that appear when one starts writing something.

To be more precise, I would like whatever appears from the ask ubuntu lens to be below the actual applications (for example if I write gedit, the application should be on top and the questions about it below)

The way it is now creates a rather "important" problem : since some time is needed to search askubuntu and return the answer, dash keeps changing sizes every time I press a new letter - making it impossible for me to hit the one I want.

EDIT : In case anyone hasn't noticed, the latest update has fixed the problem, putting applications on top of custom lenses.

Not right now, there is no way to manually rearrange elements ATM. May be something will be added in 11.10

There is also a bug report filed about this behavior:
