Yea, it is "solved", in way you received the answer. I have looked at last E version released with PCLOS and no, e-devs did not improve Everything module. Frankly, I never wanted the feature you need, but I understand it. Anyway, what I can suggest you is little bit off topic, but: there are many ways how to launch your favorite apps quickly.
1. adding apps to the IBar
2. adding apps to the favorite menu
3. key shortcut for launching the app.
I am sure I forgot at least one more method
4. weird method of renaming apps the way they will be on the position in Everything you want. But you have to disable sorting by usage. You need to sort by name (no sorting on the picture). Just an idea...
