[digiKam-users] Reread metadata from files: Can this extend to XMP sidecars?

This is what I'm trying to do...

I have a dual boot environment, Ubuntu and Windows. Two separate SQLite DB's, but both point to the same folders and files.

I am trying to do all my DigiKam tagging in Ubuntu since the program runs much nicer. Then when I boot into Windows I'd like to select Album > Reread metadata from files, so that my Windows DB gets updated.

This works fine if the metadata gets written from Ubuntu into the files themselves, such as with JPG files. However, if I'm tagging HEIC and video files and it is creating XMP sidecars, DigiKam is not willing to treat those as "metadata from files" so there is no easy way to update my Windows DB.

Is this possible to do? Is there an option I'm missing? Thanks!
