Enable "Update catalog from files" in view mode

Hi Pierre.
I sometimes watch albums with tags edited by other app (Digikam, Irfan View...) but XnViewMP doesn't show updated tags in fullscreen overlay automatically.
Function "Update catalog from files" fixes that but it works only in browse mode. It is not very convenient to switch from fullscreen to browse mode, update, and finally switch back.
Would you mind enabling it also for View mode? Shortcut working in fullscreen is all I need to be happy:-)

Update: Catalog update doesn't seem to be reliable anyway. As workaround works for me deleting the XnView.db before watching such albums.
