You can use cut and paste to reorder your buttons:
- right click and cut any button,
- then right click another button and select 'paste'.
The button will be inserted near the destination button.

You can control whether the pasted button should be inserted left/right from the destination button
if you right click near the left/right margin of the destination button.

The button bar isn't currently arrangeable via drag&drop to avoid accidental unwanted changes to the button bar.
You can drag&drop buttons in menu "Configuration - button bar", though if you don't want to use copy+paste.
