Categories aren't updated

When I switch to a folder in Xnview MP the images in that folder are cataloged and the keywords are added to the categories list.

But, when I close Xnview MP and change the metadata of an image in that folder with another program and then start Xnview MP again and switch to that folder the categories list isn't updated although the keywords of that image are changed.

Is it possible to add the behavior that Xnview MP automatically updates the catalog if I switch to a folder and the size or timestamp of an already cataloged image in that folder has changed ?

which software do you use to change? Perhaps file date is kept, and XnView MP can't detect changes

I used ACDSee to add a keyword but I also tried it with Xnview with the same result.
The file date was changed.

After adding a keyword to the image (with ACDSee or Xnview) I reopened the image with Xnview MP.
In the info panel the new keyword is visible in the IPTC-IIM tab and in the XMP tab but not in the data pane/Categories list.
After selecting the menu option "view/update catalog from files" the new keyword is added to the data pane/Categories list.

do you have the settings to import keywords from XMP/IPTC?

Yes, keywords of new images in the same folder are automatically added to the categories list.
Are you able to reproduce it ?

Ok, i can reproduce if you add IPTC keywords with XnView Classic, XnView MP doesn't update it. Issue.
