Does dragging from xfce4-appfinder work? Should be more intuitive, and 
the Application Finder can be found in the menu. Plus this should work 
for adding launchers to both the desktop and the panel. Doesn't work 
with the 4.6 panel and I can't test this with 4.8 right now but I 
remember someone writing about this on xfce4-dev.
