I try to add a quicklaunch item to the panel in Lubuntu 18.10. This seems only to work with drag and drop from the start menu and not via a menu for the panel setting.

That's correct; as of LXQt 0.13 there is no way to modify this within the LXQt Panel settings; it's mouse only.

    Even as mouse-only the behaviour is a bit strange. I seem to be able to use mouse to drag an application icon to Desktop only. Then from Desktop I can drag it to the panel. If I then delete the Desktop icon, the panel icon also stops working but stays there. Dragging directly to panel didn't work for me, or I couldn't figure out the right way. – bdutta74 May 23 '19 at 4:58

    Thanks @icarus74 your suggestion to use intermediate icon on Desktop does the trick . otherwise when directly dragging icon from e.g. PCMan File Manager ( as it supposed to work or expected in previous releases ) I got misleading: cannot be embedded into QuickLaunch for now and official docs would not help either . – Alexander Glulkhovtsev Aug 21 '19 at 6:49

Sorry, it should read like this:

[quicklaunch]

alignment=Left

apps\1\desktop=/usr/share/applications/pcmanfm-qt.desktop

apps\2\desktop=/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop

apps\3\desktop=/usr/share/applications/qterminal.desktop 

apps\size=3 

type=quicklaunch

This is how I did it in Lubuntu 19.04 to get the qterminal into the panel by changing the quicklaunch-section in the file "~/.config/lxqt/panel.conf":

[quicklaunch] alignment=Left
apps\1\desktop=/usr/share/applications/pcmanfm-qt.desktop
apps\2\desktop=/usr/share/applications/firefox.desktop
apps\3\desktop=/usr/share/applications/qterminal.desktop 
apps\size=3
> type=quicklaunch
