In my Mac Mini running OS X 10.8, the tabs shown from Dictionary are the following:

  • All
  • American English
  • American English Thesaurus
  • Apple
  • British English Thesaurus
  • Wikipedia
  • British English

I would like to change their order, as follows:

  • All
  • American English
  • American English Thesaurus
  • British English
  • British English Thesaurus
  • Apple
  • Wikipedia

I tried dragging them, but nothing happens; I also tried selecting them pressing the control keys, but all I got was a contextual menu that allows me to edit the labels, which is not what I want to do.

Is there any way to change the order that labels are shown?

Yes, just go to the Preferences for the Dictionary app. There's a list there of all the possible dictionaries, which you can then drag to be in any order you like.
