    Click on one icon, hold down the mouse button and wait till they start to jiggle. Drag the icons into alphabetical order.

    Yeah, sorry, that's the only way to do it. *shrug* Launchpad is crap anyway. ;)

    It would be awesome to have a fast way to do this. But I agree with previous poster I never use launchpad. Cmd+SB for me anytime i need an app quickly.

    You can do this with this terminal command:

    defaults write com.apple.dock ResetLaunchPad -bool true; killall Dock

    This will arrange all apple stock/system applications on the first launchpad page in the default order. On the second, third etc. page all the other apps will be arranged alphabetically.

    English is not my first language so be prepared for mistakes :)
