No it is not possible. And you can also not re-arrange the order in the plugin popup window either.
There is one workaround (Instruments plugins only), not perfect but better than nothing.
- Load an Instrument Plugin
- Save it as a Channel Strip Setting
- Open the Library window in Logic (while the Channel Strip button is selected on the Channel Strip)
- Every Channel Strip Setting that you create will be saved as a little cat file in the Finder. You can rename them to force a specific sorting order.
This is the path to the FInder location in your user directoryHope that helps

Thanks for the reply, that's very dissapointing though. This may be a good option for some, but not very practical if for example, you want to change a virtual instrumen on a channel that has effect plugins loaded on the inserts. When changing the channel presets all of the inserts will be unloaded.
Why can't Apple give the "AU Manager" the ability to actually manage plugins? Edit, rename, and organize functions would be really nice. I mainly just can't stand how some developers name their products. I would love to edit things and take out the fluff that just makes things look so messy.
